It’s the last episode of 2013, and there’s lots to talk about (starting with Rachel Sklar’s new short ‘do, courtesy of Pantene Beautiful Lengths — click to find out how to donate)!
But hair aside, world events take center stage on this episode of The Salon. Topics include: was Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu wrong to not attend Nelson Mandela’s memorial service?; why do female Jewish organizational leaders make less money than their male counterparts, as is revealed by The Forward’s 2013 Salary Survey?; after the 8th International JOFA Conference, what does the future hold for Orthodox feminism?; and are “stay-at-home-husbands” a real trend or merely a fringe phenomenon?
Featuring Gabrielle Birkner, co-founder of Modern Loss and founding editor of The Sisterhood; Debra Nussbaum Cohen, correspondent for Haaretz, contributing editor to The Forward, and author of “Celebrating Your New Jewish Daughter: Creating Jewish Ways to Welcome Baby Girls into the Covenant”; and musician Basya Schechter, bandleader of Pharaoh’s Daughter and the new Musical Director at Romemu.
