“I am the daughter of survivors and was born in a DP camp,” says Hanna, a former teacher at a Jewish Orthodox school in Ohio and today a full time granny. “So while I am American, Israel was always my home. I care about what happens here.” Her husband, a retired professor sporting a baseball cap and a heavy gray beard, nods in agreement. “America was my home,” he says. “But this is my homeland.”
The two voted - absentee - in Ohio a few months ago. There, as Hanna wryly notes, “our vote did not do much good, considering the outcome.” But here, in their adopted home, they believe they will be voting for the winning side.
