/New York Public Library In 2002, the National Heritage Museum in Lexington, Mass., opened a new exhibit, Enterprising Women: 250 Years of American Business, which celebrated the accomplishments of female entrepreneurs. Inspired by this exhibit, Gail Reimer, Director of the Jewish Women’s Archive (JWA), invited me to write a series of articles on Jewish women entrepreneurs. The mission of the JWA is to uncover, chronicle and transmit to a broad public the rich history of American Jewish women; therefore, Gail is pleased to share these articles with the readers of The Jewish Voice, in celebration of Jewish Women’s History Month.

/URIThe URI Providence Campus Arts and Culture Program will offer the production of “Trust in the Journey: Becoming Family – Marie, Jeannette and Ruth” by Frank V. Toti, Jr. from April 7-11. The play was written from original oral history testimony of three Rhode Island women. Marie and Jeannette were hidden children and became the first refugee children to come to Rhode Island, and Ruth Goldstein is their foster sister. All three share their story in Holocaust Education programs in Rhode Island and St. Petersburg, Fla., classrooms. The play is a more complete and dramatized rendering of their narrative with projected photographs and maps.

More than 150 community members submitted their six-word memoirs. /BRIAN SULLIVANSix words.
Choose them carefully because that’s all you have to tell your life story.
Should be easy, right? Anyone can complete a story that’s only six words long.
But can it encapsulate an entire life? Can it fully relate the defining moment in someone’s life? With only six words, you have to be precisely concise.
Or is it even possible to pin down a life in six words, several characters?
That was the conundrum I faced with “My Six-Word Memoir,” a calling for and exhibition of this unique artistic narrative at the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island.

/Kelly metzgerWith Passover – the holiday of remembering – approaching, the Voice thought it’d be interesting to chat with someone about the first Seder experience and the holiday in general. Who better to ask than an adult who remembers her first Passover celebration well? Kelly Metzger, a past participant of the Mothers Circle – a resource to women of other religious backgrounds raising Jewish children – graciously agreed to answer some questions.
What motivated you to study Judaism and to learn about the holidays?
I wanted to participate, not just observe.
Describe the first Seder you attended.
My first Seder was at my husband’s aunt’s house. She always hosts. I was really nervous ahead of time and, being, a librarian, did a lot of reading about Passover and the Seder ahead of time.
