My father’s daughter, my mother’s faith

This year, Father’s Day falls on June 17th, just two days before the 17th anniversary of my father’s death.

What my dad taught me about feminism

I call myself a second-generation feminist, and when I do so, I’m thinking of my mom.

Our Fathers

In a blog post last week Gabrielle Orcha asked, "What about the Jewish father? ... Who is he really?"

Where have all the Jewish fathers gone?

Thank goodness, it’s almost Father’s Day! Which means the pressure is off, at least for a day, to please mom. Whew!
