Only Boys Go to Hebrew School

My parents had three children. First my sister, then my brother, then me. They did not have a ton of money and could only afford to send one of us to Hebrew school to teach us about Judaism and prepare for a bar/bat mitzvah. Instead of sending the eldest, they sent my brother, because he was the only boy. I felt like he was valued more, and resented that I didn’t get the chance to learn about my religion.
