TONIGHT! RSVP Below for "Living as a Frum Black Woman: A Conversation with Maayan Zik and Yaffy Newman."

After the profile of Maayan Zik was published in Vogue, we found a range of responses on social media and in Chabad mommy groups.
We heard shock about the painful experiences Maayan has in the community we love, the specter of the Crown Heights riots, and desire for more information.

We heard the urgent need to hear more from frum Black women as they talk about what it's like for them in our community. We hope this event will be an opportunity that many asked for to find out what we all can do better with the mitzvah of ahavas Yisrael, a mandate that is incumbent upon us at every moment of every day.

You can register here, and submit any questions you would like Maayan and Yaffy to consider. We ask for a donation of $5, which will go to the speakers for their time:

Hope to see you all there!

Rachel Faulkner has noticed that her Facebook feed has gone back to "normal" after the increase in Black Lives Matter content due to George Floyd's murder. In "You Gave Him Permission" she considers the everyday aspects of society that allow police like Derek Chauvin to murder a Black man and "not even blink a moment of concern".

Finally a book has come out that all Jewish People must read. It explains that neither Jewish or any man had anything to do with Jesus's Death. Also explain what happened to Jesus when he went against God's wishes and went upon the mountain with Satan. DO YOU KNOW WHY? Why Did Jesus say… Pick Up the Serpent and Drink All Deadly Things? Why did Jesus tell the rich man… To see Heaven, you must obey the Ten Commandments and give to the Needy, yet preachers tell you that you are forgiven for your sins? Why did Jesus say… Don’t call me Good Master for there is none good but God. but later said I am the way and the light, and you can only get to Heaven through me? If Jesus is God why when he was on the cross, cry out God, God, why have you forsaken me? If Jesus was dying for our sins (which the Bible never said so) then why would he say God forsaken him? A God can move mountains and hold back seas, why was Jesus not able to remove a small nail from his hand. How did Mary walk right pass Jesus and not notice him? Why did his disciples go up to him and ask Stranger, have you seen Jesus? What really happened to Jesus when he went up on the mountain with Satan? There are many questions about the Bible and finally there is a book that explains all. “ I LOVE GOD by Gregory St. James Mundy”

Wonderful.
Often, career women stand on the shoulders of other women in their lives who served as mentors, role models, pillars of support ... such as their mothers. This letter is from my bold writer and teacher mom, soliciting freelance work as a young mother in the 1950's. I was her "baby girl" -- and I still miss and need her. 280 Riverside Drive New York 25, N.Y. January 15, 1957 Gentlemen: I should like to know if you have any free-lance copy-editing and proofreading work to be done. If so, I am definitely in the market for these services. For two years I was a copy editor in Harper & Brothers Publishers' trade book department. The books in this department ranged from the most distinguished belles-lettres to the rough whodonits and how-to's. With this experience and discipline under my belt, I feel I can cope with any kind of manuscript or set of galleys which you may have to offer. The reason I solicit free-lance work is that I have a baby girl who needs me at home. But I have ample time in which to do free-lance work, and I assure you I would be faithful to any deadline you issued. Should you wish to arrange an interview, discuss the stylistic policies of your publishing house, rates, etc., my telephone number is Riverside 9-6932. I hope to hear from you. Sincerely, (Mrs.) Sydell Rosenberg
Enjoy!
Thank you for declaring me a top fan. I am quite honored.
