The Jewish Religion

This symbol is depicted in the short story, 'Song of Soloman' and in the story, "Hyacinths". In "Hyacinths", David is saved by an uncle who is Jewish and David is not Jewish. His aunt argues with his uncle about whether or not David should convert to Judaism, which would require David to be circumcised. When David’s father wants to take David back home, he tells his aunt and uncle that he doesn’t care what has to happen he wants to be Jewish and want to be a doctor like Uncle Hi. Therefore, for David, being Jewish is freedom from his father.

In "Song of Solman" the Jewish Religion is, once again, freedom, and a bringing together, of two people. Kate and Dr. Sheldon meet at the Jewish Synagogue and realize that they both have feelings for one another.
