Dear Readers: Celebrating Women

by | Apr 20, 2023 | Trending News

Dear Readers,

Celebrating women – moms, mentors, colleagues, and friends – is always important, but especially appropriate as we approach Mother’s Day next month.

I’ve been fortunate to have had some pretty spectacular women in my life. . . starting with the first one I met, my mom.  Plenty of others – grandmothers, aunts, cousins, family friends – each found a way to teach, influence, and share their love with me. Then came my own friends (many that are lifers) and the best. . . my daughters.
Of course, I’m not alone in appreciating wonderful women. Beginning on page 15, Simon, Dustin, and Erica Fink, Amy Weinstein, and Jennie Hurtwitz Tabakin, pay tributes to their mothers, Kim Simon Fink, Ellen Wagner, and Sherrill Hurwitz, and I offer one to my mentor, Marilyn Goldman.
As a Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and a martini fan, the article about the Mrs. Maisel-themed martini on page 20 was particularly fun for me to read. Think of the possibilities of creating personality-inspired drinks to toast a celebrant.  What would yours be? Mine would probably include Old Bay – I’m a Norfolk native who loves seafood, heat, and spice.
All of us at Jewish News hope your Mother’s Day celebration (as the celebrant or celebrator) is filled with laughter, peace, love, and appreciation.
Happy Mother’s Day!
