The events that led up to the author’s decision to talk
I was born in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1965. I grew up during the 1967 Six-Day War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War. As a child, I was constantly afraid that we would be attacked and that I would die. In 1991, my unit was sent to Iraq as part of Operation Desert Storm. We were stationed in the desert near Baghdad. I was terrified the whole time that we would be hit by a Scud missile. A few months after we returned home, my best friend from high school was killed in a terrorist attack. These events all led to me becoming a very quiet person and not wanting to talk about my feelings or experiences.

Weinstein says that he wrote the book to help people understand what it’s like to grow up in an ultra-Orthodox community. “I wanted to show people what it was like to be a part of this community,” he says. “A lot of times, when you hear about these communities, it’s from people who have left them. I wanted to show what it’s like from the inside.
