This podcast is not about Nice Jewish Girls. It’s about Jewish girls who are so much more than nice. It’s about journalists and authors, speechwriters and senators, prime ministers and rock stars. This podcast will redefine the way we see Jewish women—not as Jewish American Princesses, not as nags or klutzes, not as bossy or loud. As strong, as smart, as fearless. As Esthers, as Rachels, as Miriams. Every week, host Julia Jassey will be speaking to Jewish women who are breaking new ground and changing history.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and on Nice Jewish Girls, Julia talks to Elana Silber, the powerhouse CEO of Sharsheret. Sharsheret is a national organization supporting Jewish women and families facing breast and ovarian cancer. They talk about the impact of Sharsheret, the resilience and hope of women, and tools for women to make the best decisions for themselves.
