Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life
Oy! Only Six? Why Not More? Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life
With contributions from machers like Larry David, Henry Winkler, Jonathan Safran Foer, Elizabeth Wurtzel, Maira Kalman and Mayor Ed Koch, along with hundreds of never-before-published writers, Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life offers 360 stories of faith and family, duty and identity, celebration and tsuris that will inform, delight and inspire—six words at a time.
From identity and mother issues to unfettered love of carbs and inner conflict over Israel—and the sheer joy of discussing and debating… Jewish life is a rich and storied topic for Jews and non-Jews alike.
