This book, by Siegel, Cole, and Steinberg-Oren, is a wonderful collection of stories that Jewish mothers from all different backgrounds share with the readers. The stories are powerful and thought provoking and the book is divided into 6 different sections. Jewish women from all walks of life, contributed to the book by answering the questions "Am I as good as the idealized Jewish mother?" or"Am I as bad as the caricature" sometimes portrayed in our culture about what it means to be a Jewish mother. This book would be a great gift for anyone in your life who is a Jewish mother, acts like a Jewish mother, or wants to be a Jewish mother.
