My life choices didn't seem like some horrible mistake, and the heartbreak of romance gone awry, which inspired the song in the first place, seemed like a small price to pay for the redemption of this full circle moment -- in this iconic space -- in New York -- more than a decade later.

I have spent most of my adult life distancing myself from my Jewish identity. On many levels this isn't that surprising: My father's family had a history of 'passing' as gentile in order to secure employment denied Jews in early 20th Century America.
