Some Genes: Shalom Aleichem’s Centenarian Granddaughter Has Still Got Something To Say

Talk about getting out of the shtetl. Thank goodness for amazing genetics and innovative drive that have made New York’s local PBS’s¬†illuminating interview with Bel Kaufman possible.

Watch the full episode. See more Metrofocus.

What’s so special: It’s an interview with a leading lady on the creative scene at an age that promises a rich perspective informed by:

  • Shalom Aleichem’s humor
  • Rich experience in Jewkrainian as well as American scenes
  • An author’s filter of diverse cultures
  • The wisdom of someone who lived among diversity: from the every day people of Odessa to the public high school students of New York.
  • Enough optimistic to kick the suffering, Soviet, self-hating, or otherwise, right out of you

Shalom Aleichem, Bellushka. You’ve done good work, and we’re lucky to have you.
