What Else She Said

Well, my role models were my mother [Feige Ruderman] and my grandmother [Devorah]. They were women who stood up for dignity. My grandmother taught her children (she had 5 daughters) and she taught them to play the piano and to speak French at a time when Jewish religious women were not doing this. She was also a woman who was blind and she knew her prayers by heart and standing next to her on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur was nerve wracking because she would rattle off the prayers, you know without looking at the book and Woe Be! if you make a mistake; so they were role models. I saw my mother and the work that she put into build Ner Israel [a rabbinical school in Baltimore], the community and how she worked and got women to be involved and I try to follow.
