Description: 

Join BYFI alumni Judy Batalion '94 and Judith Rosenbaum '90 for an intimate discussion about mothers and daughters.

The “Jewish mother” can loom large – in popular culture, our own families, and our psyches. Join Judy and Judith for a conversation about what it means to be a Jewish mother (and a Jewish daughter!) in the 21st century, and the ongoing ways we fashion this identity from an intricate mix of historical, familial, and personal experiences and values.

Judy Batalion will be reading excerpts from her recently published memoir "White Walls: A Memoir About Motherhood, Daughterhood, and the Mess In Between."

Judy Batalion is an author who has written about has written about parenting, relationships, mental health and more - most recently in her memoir "White Walls: A Memoir About Motherhood, Daughterhood, and the Mess In Between".

Judith Rosenbaum is the Executive Director of the Jewish Women’s Archive, a pioneering national organization that documents Jewish women’s stories, elevates their voices, and inspires them to be agents of change.
