What Else She Said

Just the friendships that came out of it, to be involved with people that I normally didnít have contact with, it was incredible. I still have such respect for everybody that I worked with. I loved it. It was a wonderful time, very tiring. I had just given birth and we had meetings in my house so that I could nurse the baby. I would be there still for the 1:00 a.m. nursing and everybody would be around. It was marvelous."
- Shoshie Kahn

"When I grew up, nothing was worse than divorce. The worse marriage was better than divorce. That's how orthodox people grew up. When I came here, I was always amazed by the openness of the community here. I was here 5 years from Israel when I got involved in SHALVA. It was a pleasure working with Chicago community women because they were so open and so ready to make changes. In the society where I came from, it wasnít so accepted and understood... But I was enriched by my involvement on a personal and professional level. It was a growing experience for me as a Jewish woman.
- Tamar Friedman
