"Yo tuve en muchas oportunidades a pesar que no lo sentía..." [Entrevista: 1996]
(English translation) INTERVIEWER: You were telling me that you used to go with your father to the synagogue? ISRAEL C.: I had many opportunities, even though I didn't feel it, I don't know why, I didn't feel the urge to follow the religious traditions. I didn't have it in me. But because of shame my father had to take someone. Because I was the most studious one in the household, the one who knew how to read the best and everything, I had to accompany him most of the time, to Yom Kippur, a Sabbath, Rosh Hashanah. I had to go with him to schul and stay with him because he was embarrassed that no child… if no child were with him.
