me: the United States
woman: you are here on Birthright?
me: no, I am here for an internship
woman: you have a very Jewish face. Jewish eyes.
me: Yes, I am told this a lot.
woman: Very Jewish nose. You are Jewish?
me: No, no.
woman: where do you work then?
me: Rabbis for Human Rights
woman: So you are Jewish?
woman: But VERY Jewish face. I think maybe you are Jewish and you just don't know. Everyone in United States is mixed up.
me: Yes, I suppose it is possible.
woman: you have very pretty Jewish hair.
