Many years ago I dated a woman who was the child of Holocaust survivors. My potential future in-laws were elderly and were closer in age to my grandparents than my parents. I went to ask a great rabbi if this was cause for concern. He responded, “Who really knows who is old and who is young?” We have all learned with recent events that being just 6 years old can in fact be “very old.”
