Kaplen JCC on the Palisades to Present ‘A Sunday of Strong Women’

The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades presents “A Sunday of Strong Women”—a day of laughs, lunch and loads of inspiration on Sunday, March 24, 10:30 am-1:30 pm, as three female authors with unique stories to tell share their ideas. Audacious and tenacious, these women will engage, enlighten and entertain. So grab a friend and share in a few inspirational hours.

Angela Himsel—“A River Could Be a Tree”

One of 11 children raised in a farmhouse in Indiana by parents who followed a cult-like branch of Christianity, Himsel found, on a trip to Israel, that her real connection to God was through Judaism.

Susie Orman Schnall—“The Subway Girls”

Based on the Miss Subways contest that ran in New York City from 1941 to 1976, this is the story of two strong women, generations apart, who are up against the same struggles to find the balance among ambition, love and happiness.

Alexandra Silber—“White Hot Grief Parade”

After the death of her father when she was a teen, Al and her mother needed to figure out how to live the rest of their lives. This book is an ode to friendship and its restorative power and the unbreakable bond, even in death, between father and daughter.

Tickets: $38 JCC members, $46 public. Register at jccotp.org/ssw or call Kathy Graff at 201-408-1454.

The day has been made possible in part by the following sponsors: Kim and Marc Harrison, Lisa Beth and Greg Meisel, Eileen and Brian Pleva and Julie Segal and Mark Warner. It has also been supported by the James H. Grossmann Memorial Jewish Book Endowment Fund.
