for those who identify as female:

I am __________ bat (daughter of) __________ bat __________ bat ___________

for those who identify as male:

I am __________ ben (son of) _______________ ben __________ ben ___________


Use your English, Hebrew, Yiddish and/or Ladino names. Go back as many generations as you can. You may choose to invoke the names of women who have been like mothers and grandmothers for you regardless of biological ties.
