My post-diasporic Everyman has been renamed Ira for the purposes of this pending publication of Not Not a Jew. He has not undergone any specific moment of revelation or trauma. Inadvertently, he begins to confront his own lack of specific belonging through an encounter with his aging parents who are unsettled survivors of the displacements of European Jewry effected by the Holocaust. Only vaguely and distractedly, does Ira comprehend his relationship to Jewish identity. He is distinguished by his ordinariness, his lack of maturity. He is rootless, lives between a lost past and a non-integrated present. Not so his parents, Eli and Vera.
