This growing online collection contains reminiscences of a variety of recently deceased American Jewish women who made a difference in their community and beyond.
For decades and well into her 90s she turned age on its head, subverting its preconceptions, making it an adventure.
She went from a young Argentinian middle- to upper-class kid raised not to question women's roles in the home to leading crusader for women's issues (notably as they applied to the world of science)...
She always treated everyone the same regardless of race, gender, class, or age. She knew innately that these things were right. It took society a full generation or more to catch up with her.
In her a genetic disposition to the appeal of tikkun olam was evident, in the course of a life devoted to deploying the law in behalf of progressive causes of special concern to the Jewish people.
