From the Paper:

"Ochs explores her religious thoughts, her perspectives as they existed prior to her decision to go to Jerusalem. Religious enlightenment, according to her own description, was something people sought to meet an individual need, to fill a void within themselves where the sense of "missing," took them over and sent them on their way for their new age type mantra. Ochs perceived it both as ridiculous, in a way - perhaps in the way that she had been raised as a Jewish female; at this point, her story does not make this connection, but the reader might. To actually acquire faith, she said, was the product of an overly active imagination."
