Grandma Rowaida's Dark Secret

Mordechai Halawa was born in Kuwait and raised as a Muslim. Afterthe first gulf war, he and his family moved to Amman, Jordan, where he attended High School and then spent two years at the Thishreen University in Latakia, Syria. The next two years of his education was spent at the University of Western Ontario in Canada.

It was there that he met a Rabbi serving as a Professor of Philosophy. In the course of their discussions Mordechai made mention that his maternal grandmother was born Jewish, met and married a Jordanian soldier in 1946, ran off to Nablus and converted to Islam.

Mordechai’s life journey was about to take a most unexpected turn. Mordechai Halawa currently studies at a Yeshiva in Jerusalem.
