  1. Thanks for posting the article, Erika.
    “If you want something done, your best bet is to ask a Jewish woman to do it,” she said in a 2006 interview. Jewish women, she continued, “have an ability to cut through all the reasons why something should, shouldn’t or can’t be done, and pull people together to be successful.”

    This really resonates with me. I’ve seen first hand, over and over again.

    • Yes, Evelyn, that’s a great line, too.

      She is so very present in my thoughts.

      I thought the NYT did a really nice job with that article. Glad that you agree.
