Rebecca Rubin, born in 1905, is from a Jewish family. Her mother and grandparents immigrated from Russia and maintain their family heritage. Rebecca wants to be an actress when she grows up, but her family wants her to be a teacher. She is thoughtful and generous and often accompanies her father to help work at his shoe store. Rebecca has a knack with business and making money, similar to her father, and is very good at crocheting. Because she gets hand-me-downs from her older twin sisters, Rebecca has two sets of almost all her outfits and shares them with her cousin Ana. She loves to make people laugh and is described as being lively with a dramatic flair—a little bossy at times and tends to want things to go her way.
