Beyond Flowers and Perfume: Celebrate the Women in Your Life This Mother's Day

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, we have a couple of thoughtful ideas that will help make the mothers in your life feel extra special this year. On the day itself, why not take your mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends to the Museum of Jewish Heritage to see Judy Gold’s hilarious and poignant show 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother? which has been called “fiercely funny, honest, and moving,” and “a rich borscht” full of characters by the New York Times. See a clip here.

We are also thrilled to announce the release of a wonderful, uplifting cookbook: Recipes Remembered: A Celebration of Survival by June Feiss Hersh. The book includes moving stories about food and families; recipes from Holocaust survivors from around the world; as well as recipes from many top chefs including Mark Bittman, Daniel Boulud, and Ina Garten. All proceeds will benefit the Museum, which makes this inspiring book a gift that will keep on giving long after it is unwrapped and treasured. Read a review in the New York Times.
