Hadassah Lieberman’s American Story
Hosted By: Streicker Center Temple Emanu-El NYC
Think George Soros. Bella Abzug. Albert Einstein. Louis Brandeis. Emma Goldman. Louis B. Mayer. George Gershwin. Hedy Lamarr.
American Jewish history is replete with immigrant success stories, of men and women whose families escaped poverty, pogroms and persecution to wind up groundbreaking scientists, artists, lawyers, doctors and business leaders.
But Hadassah Lieberman’s has an ending like no other: the daughter of Holocaust survivors, born when Europe was barely on the road to recovery, she moved to America, went to university, built a successful career and then married the 22nd Jew to serve in the United States Senate — who would become the first Jewish candidate on a major party presidential ticket.
Upon the release of her new memoir, Hadassah: An American Story, she will share the compelling narrative of that life and her multiple identities as an immigrant, an American, a Jew, a working woman, wife, mother and grandmother.
