What’s it like to take in foster children? What’s it like to be a foster child? Chana Shloush spoke to foster parents and foster children for the feature, “One of the Family,” in the upcoming issue. Here’s a quote from David Zedner, a former foster child:
“…It’s a little hard because a person like me doesn’t have a parent figure who is guiding them through practical issues like how to pay rent, what to do when they get into a car accident, etc. This is especially complex in the yeshiva culture, where there’s an understanding that the bachur will be taken care of until he gets married; only then is he fully independent. My Rebbeim told me, ‘There’s nothing to worry about. You’ve got a good head. Sit and learn. Every other bachur is here learning, and is fine.’ But I wasn’t like the others. I had to leave yeshiva in the middle because I was a bachur worrying about where to live and how to make a living, due to pressure from the foster care system to become a fully independent adult.”
You are allowed to stay in foster care until 21; after you turn 18 you may leave whenever you want.

Esther Tiferes Tebeka was born and raised in China. She had never seen a Jew! So why did she yearn to become one? Only ten years after her conversion, on a visit to China to learn the secrets of acupuncture from her father, did she find out that her paternal grandfather had been Jewish.
