I read a short story a few years ago in a collection of science fiction stories. It may have been a "best of the year" type of collection, but I am not sure. It included stories from many different authors.
One story was written by a Jewish author about a Jewish man raising his daughter. His wife had died. He and his daughter were either the only Jews or the only religiously observant Jews in a small town. The girl became sick with a degenerative and terminal disease. He was a robotics engineer and built an android as a replacement for his daughter, including somehow copying the memories of the daughter into the android. When the girl first discovered the android she was (understandably) quite upset, but as she got closer to death she & the android came to terms with each other. The end of the story was that shortly after the girl passed away, on the day that would have been her Bat Mitzvah, the father had the android light Shabbat candles.
Does anyone know where I can find this story?
