Drawing on his memoir, The Scorekeeper, a finalist for the 2018 Oregon Book Award, retired journalist and author Edward Hershey reflects on the lofty aspirations and sobering limitations of Jewish-American life in the 1950's and 60's when his own New York neighborhood was “as Jewish as Ivory soap — 99 and 44/100s pure.”
