Radio Curious visits with Penny Rosenwasser, author of “Hope into Practice: Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears,” a book that explores internalized oppression and describes steps to embrace who we are as a means to create a world based on love, tolerance and justice.
Barry Vogel, Attorney and Counselor is the Host and Producer of Radio Curious. Christina Aanestad is the Assistant Producer.
When Penny Rosenwasser, our guest in this edition of Radio Curious, was a child in the suburbs of Virginia, people sometimes said, “You don't look Jewish.” She replied “Thank you.”
Her book “Hope into Practice: Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears,” delves into the Jewish experience and its rich yet tragic cultural history. She explores internalized oppression and ways to face fear with a positive outcome, and describes steps to embrace who we are as a means to create a world based on love, tolerance and justice.
I spoke with Penny Rosenwasser from her home near San Francisco, California on May 5th, 2014. She began our conversation by describing a major theme of her book.
Penny Rosenwasser’s website is: pennyrosenwasser.com.
The book she recommends is: “The Colors of Jews: Racial Politics and Radical Diasporism,” by Melanie Kaye/Kantrowitz.
