Timeless Lessons from the Frontlines of Motherhood with Author, Former Congresswoman and Journalist, Marjorie Margolies


FREE in-person program.


Mar­jorie Mar­golies’ Jew­ish father always said that you should aspire to change another’s life. That con­cept of tikkun olam, was instilled in her from an ear­ly age and she was deter­mined to apply the con­cept to her own fam­i­ly. Mar­jorie’s fam­i­ly grew expo­nen­tial­ly. She adopt­ed two girls from Viet­nam and Korea, mar­ried a Jew­ish Con­gress­man with four daugh­ters, and spon­sored a Catholic refugee fam­i­ly from Viet­nam, bring­ing the num­ber of kids under her roof to eleven. Mar­jorie’s book is the sto­ry of the her family’s journey on instilling respect for all faiths.
