This chapter discusses the time when Judith Schindler left New York for Charlotte in 1998. Judith confessed the move “was a leap of faith,” like getting married or becoming a rabbi. Three years earlier she had been ordained at Hebrew Union College in New York. Judith had intended to be a clinical psychologist but felt spiritually drawn to a profession that historically had been closed to women. While serving as an associate rabbi in Scarsdale, New York, she had met Chip Wallach, a banker, and they decided to marry. Their ambition, like many of their generation, was to be a two-career family. When they considered Wall Street for him and a New York synagogue for her, they felt uncomfortable with big-city pressures.
