To All my Jewish Mothers

Kathleen Spivack wrote of Jeanne Simonoff's latest work, "Saving Myself," that her "beautifully written memoir explores what it means to be human, to overcome hardship and loss, and to come into one's own. It's full of life, and we are with her all the way. The book is a complete delight; poignant, charming, brimming over with observation, vitality, and the will to survive." A regular visitor to Paris, Jeanne's book is dedicated "to all my mothers" -- but perhaps she should have said instead, "to all my Jewish mothers." Some of us can seriously relate...some of hers (mothers) even have the same names as some of mine!
