We’ve got a special show for you this week, Unorthodoxers. We’re excited to have Tablet columnist Marjorie Ingall back on to discuss her new book, Mamaleh Knows Best: What Jewish Mothers Do to Raise Successful, Creative, Empathetic, Independent Children, which comes out August 30. In it, she challenges the stereotype of the overbearing, coddling Jewish mother, arguing that Jewish mothers actually instill in their children confidence, independence, and a healthy skepticism of authority. She’s joined on-air by Rav Danya Ruttenberg, author of Nurture the Wow: Finding Spirituality in the Frustration, Boredom, Tears, Poop, Desperation, Wonder, and Radical Amazement of Parenting, which came out this spring.
Our fundraising drive is coming to an end. Thank you to everyone who contributed, we geniunely appreciate the support (and funny notes!). And if you’re catching up on episodes, it’s never too late to give some shekels to your favorite Jewish podcast.
We love hearing from you! Email us at with comments, questions, and complaints. We may share your letter on air.
