Marra Gad, In the Image of G-d
Marra Gad with Joelle Herr, owner the Bookshop
An independent film and television producer offers a warm and insightful conversation on what you inherit from your family. Born Jewish and mixed-race and adopted by a loving Jewish family, Marra Gad has struggled between two often-times unwelcoming worlds. In her new heart-wrenching and heartwarming memoir, The Color of Love: A Story of a Mixed-Race Jewish Girl, Marra explores the idea of yerusha, or “inheritance” in Yiddish. In the end, Marra teaches us that when all else is stripped away, love is where we return, and love is always our greatest inheritance. This event is co-sponsored by the Bookshop.
