Top Ten Moments For Jewish Women In 2014

I’ve already expressed my feelings on the whole “year of the Jewish woman” thing, but that’s not to say we shouldn’t celebrate the many great moments for Jewish women in 2014. Here, in no particular order, are a few of our favorites at JWA.

Margot Adler, 1946 - 2014

Margot was seven and a half years my senior and, with the exception of a few gaps, she’s always been a part of my life. There is some reason to believe that we met when I was less than one year old and again when I was 10. However, our real friendship began when I was 13 and she 20.

For years, we were inseparable. When she got married, we still spent time together, although we had less contact as she and John raised their son.
