Where Have All the Men Gone? (in Contact)


by Rebecca Honig Friedman

I’ve got an article in the Fall 2008 issue of Contact, the Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life’s quarterly publication, viewable online in PDF form. My article’s on pp. 14-15.

And before you read, please note a couple corrections to it that I just received:

1. Hadassah Hospital was nominated for but did not win the Nobel Peace Prize.
2. Shoshana S. Cardin was not a president of Hadassah, but, “She was the first woman to become the Chair of the Board of Associated Jewish Community of Baltimore in1983; the first female President of Council of Jewish Federations in 1984; the first female Chair of the National Council of Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) in 1988; the first female Chair of the Council [sic] of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in 1991; the first female President of The National Center for Learning and Leadership (CLAL) in 1992; and the first woman to Chair the United Israel Appeal in 1994.” (Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame)

  1. not to be nitpicky, but it’s the *conference* of presidents of major american jewish organizations, not the *council*

  2. that’s not nitpicky. i’m not taking responsibility for that one though, i was merely copying and pasting from th maryland women’s hall of fame.

  3. Additional correction, for the record. It’s the National Conference on Soviet Jewry.

  4. ha. we should alert the MD women’s hall of fame. anyone else have any corrections?

  5. Great article Rebecca; and you’re in good company!
