HaMakom Continuing Education Presents

My Yiddishe Mama
Jewish Women in Film - the early years

Marcia Torobin, Presenter
Tuesday, June 8 at 7 PM on Zoom

The heyday of Jewish film lasted until the early 1930s. Jewish women such as Vera Gordon and Molly Picon, figured prominently in many of these, and stars like Theda Bara crossed over to main stream cinema. This is their story and that of the generation of Jewish women stars who followed and but whose Jewish identity disappeared.

Marcia Torobin is the Director of the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival. Originally started under the auspices of HaMakom, the festival will begin its twelfth season this fall. Marcia is active in the Jewish community and serves or has served on the Boards of the New Mexico Jewish Historical Society, Jewish Federation of New Mexico, HaMakom, and has been actively involved in other organizations.

HaMakom Book Club Currently Reading

American Baby: A Mother, A Child, and the Shadow History of Adoption, by Gabrielle Glaser.
Claiming to be acting in the best interests of all, the adoption business was founded on secrecy and lies. American Baby lays out how a lucrative and exploitative industry removed children from their birth mothers and placed them with hopeful families, fabricating stories about infants' origins and destinations, then closing the door firmly between the parties forever. Adoption agencies and other organizations that purported to help pregnant women struck unethical deals with doctors and researchers for pseudoscientific "assessments," and shamed millions of young women into surrendering their children.
