A congregant of mine in Ireland, a good friend and a man of so many different talents and such incredible skill as to make me feel hugely under-accomplished, asked me a couple of weeks ago whether trauma was trans-generational.  It was a good question, although my immediate, Pavlovian response was to utter a resounding yes, and add ‘for Jews even more so’.
