The celebrated author Rachel Lichtenstein (Rodinsky's Room [with Iain Sinclair], Rodinsky's Whitechapel and On Brick Lane} is working on a new project celebrating the lives of Jewish women of the East End and hopes JEECS people can help.
She writes: Dear Members, I am a writer who is currently working on a book of Jewish Women of East London. I am looking for female members of this group who grew up or still live in East London who might be willing to be interviewed on Zoom about their lives for this project. Or gentlemen, if you have stories about your grandmothers, mothers, wives or sisters you would be willing to share please do let me know. Aside from Miriam Moses can anyone think of famous Jewish women from East London? Please help me find the best stories for this important missing volume on women of the East End.
I will happily pass on any thoughts you might have to Rachel.
