The Modern Jewish Girl's Guide to Guilt

That's me with Ruth Andrew Ellenson, Editor of The Modern Jewish Girl's Guide to Guilt (Dutton, 2005). On April 24, Ruthie signed and read from her terrific anthology, which has been correctly described as "a hilarious, surprising, moving, and thoughful book that captures all that is complicated and wonderful about being a Jewish woman today." The event at Matilda's on N. Sheffield, was sponsored by The Hillels of Illinois, which is supported by the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago. Hillel helps Jewish students and young adults "encounter, explore, and express their identity as Jews." If you buy Ruthie's book, and mine, you'll get an eye-opening view of Jewish women, from way back in the 1940s to present day. Enjoy...
