Many folks here are most likely : English , German , Italian or Irish

Do you sometimes read the news of the countries where you folks once lived ???

Every week , I read ynet or jpost to see what is going on in Israel

How long was your family living in Israel? I can't really make any connection after 4 or 5 generations away from where my forebears emigrated.

My ancestral home was a mold and cockroach infested apartment in the shit end of the ghetto

I am trying very hard to forget it

When I was young, I was immensely interested in my ancestors' homeland.

Now that I am old, I am disgusted by how that homeland is acting and am ashamed of it.

So I have lost all interest in it.

I figure it this way.

If my 'ancestral home' was worth caring about, then those broke Irish bastards that hopped those boats to America would have stayed.
