Letter from Stacy Amasal to Susannah Heschel Transcript

22 December, 1983

Dear Susannah,

I was present at the talk you gave at Clark University. I want to thank you. The issues involved in being a feminist Jewish woman have troubled me for about ten years now. The issues involved in being a Jewish woman have troubled me since I was about six- that’s 31 years!! I’ve been trying, to talk about it and have read everything I could find. It has especially troubled me since my own daughter was born seven years ago. Well, I want to express my gratitude to you.

For all our sakes I wish you well in your work.

Sincerely,
Stacy Amasal
