Lili Sorota grew up in the Republic of Moldova. When she was a teenager, her family emigrated to the United States and settled in San Francisco. Always fascinated by California, Ryan Lamberg left Baltimore in his 20s and moved to San Francisco. Though both were raised with a sense that they were Jewish, neither of them has ever fully committed themselves to one particular way of Jewish religious practice as adults. In this segment, Sorota and Lamberg discuss how they continue to seek a Jewish path in their lives that feels right for each of them.
The decision to live in the Bay Area is personal and encompasses a wide range of experiences and motivations—some have moved here because of love, others to attend university, to seek a new job, to escape persecution, to establish new rituals, or just to dream a little.

In this documentary commissioned for the exhibition "California Dreaming: Jewish Life in the Bay Area from the Gold Rush to the Present", filmmaker Pam Rorke Levy interviewed a wide range of individuals who call the Bay Area home and identify in some way with being Jewish.
