JWA's Executive Director, Judith Rosenbaum, will be in conversation with Odd Mom Out's Jill Kargman and the Unorthodox podcast about the persistence of the "JAP" (Jewish American Princess) stereotype. A short film on the term will be screened, followed by a lively discussion with guests including Bat Sheva Marcus (who appear in the film). There will be loads of audience participation as well!
