WILMINGTON, Del. — When Marc Insinga was a teenager, he frequently wrapped holiday gifts for his brothers and cousins in the wrong color wrapping paper: blue and white for Christmas or red and green for Hanukkah.
With a mother who was Jewish and a father who was Catholic, Marc and his brothers were raised in different faiths. Marc and his younger brother were raised in the Jewish faith, his older brother in the Catholic one.
His parents decided the fairest way to decide who would be raised in what faith was to flip a coin when Marc was five.
Now, the Wilmington resident is raising two young Catholic-Jewish girls, or second-generation “cashews” as he calls them.
