Interview: Tamar Snyder, Financial Empowerment Jewess

Being just the sort of person Tamar Snyder is trying to reach with her new financial empowerment organization, Pazit, I am really excited about this interview. Read on for practical financial advice and insight into why we women are not more on top of our money — and how we can be.
Tamar Snyder is […]

Interview: “German Bride” Author, Joanna Hershon

It’s dark, dreary and raining here in New York, just the kind of weather that makes you want to curl up with a good novel.
The German Bride, by Joanna Hershon, would be a perfect choice. Part-romance, part-travel-adventure, part-history, The German Bride is a fun but still thoughtful, and educational, plot-driven read, “a stylish account of […]

Interview: Deborah Grayson Riegel, Professional Coaching Jewess

Even for those of us who no longer run on a school schedule, summer time comes with a sense of possibility and renewal, a chance to recharge our batteries and take stock of the previous year’s work — while lying on the beach, perhaps.
As such, it’s the perfect time to seek advice from a professional […]

Alright, confession time.
I lost one of my few guilty pleasures when Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City” ended a few weeks ago. I can’t quite put […]

Interview: Sivan Achor, Heart-For-Africa Jewess

In their spare time, most people like to watch TV, read a book, perhaps have coffee with a friend. But business-wunderkind Sivan Achor is not like the rest of us average Janes.
In her spare time, she serves as the President and Founder of the non-profit organization Jewish Heart for Africa, which installs Israeli solar technologies […]

Interview: Basya Shechter, Pharaoh’s Daughter/ Musical-Genius Jewess*

“One of the most talented Jewish music makers of her generation,” writes arts critic George Robinson of Basya Shechter, in the Westchester Jewish Week.
It’s no small accolade, what with the bevy of talented young musicians making waves in the contemporary Jewish music scene. Yet, considering the overwhelmingly positive reviews Shechter and her band Pharaoh’s Daughter […]

Interview: John Hudson, Shakespeare-as-Jewess Proponent

John Hudson is the author of “The Dark Lady”, a historical biography of Amelia Bassano, a Marrano Jewess living in Elizabethan England who he contends is the true author of William Shakespeare’s plays and poetry. The Bassano theory is based on the discovery of Jewish allegories in the plays, and Hudson formed The Dark […]

Video Interview: Monica Haim, Reggae-Loving Jewess

Since I’ve been so excited about Jewish women and music lately, here’s a segment I produced for The Jewish Channel (TJC) — an interview with Monica Haim, director of the film Awake Zion, which explores the connection between Judaism and Rastafarianism, and is playing on TJC (channel 291 on Cablevision’s iO Digital).
The voiceover narration belongs […]

Non-Jewess Art Interview

Check out my interview with Iconia’s Menachem Wecker on the concept of “evil art.” It’s on The Docent, the resident blog of The Jewish Channel (TJC), which for those who don’t know is where I spend my non-blogging working hours (though sometimes I blog there, too). Here’s a bit of what Menachem has to say […]
