From March ’12 Spotlight: Also on March 11 (but a few hours earlier), I’ll be doing a Women’s History Month program of my own down at KAM Isaiah Israel in Hyde Park. The subject is “Sholem Aleichem’s Women: A Tribute to Marie Waife-Goldberg.”
Waife-Goldberg, the youngest of Solomon Rabinowitz’ daughters, was the author of My Father, Sholem Aleichem (originally published by Simon and Schuster in 1968).
This will be an expanded version of the talk I gave at the third annual Limmud Day of Jewish Learning at UIC on Feb. 19.
