Introduce Yourself: Bob White
What's Your Story?
Hello, my name is Bob White and I was born and raised in Chicago. My dad was raised as an Orthodox Jew in Russia, but when he emigrated to Chicago, he rebelled and joined a Conservative synagogue. He was president of our temple, seemingly forever, was active in the Zionist Organization and was always selling Israel bonds to anyone who would buy them.
