  • Up Close: Roberta Kaplan and Peninnah Schram & R’ Sandy Eisenberg Sasso

    by TJC Staff
    Play

    This week on Up Close, love stories make up a large part of American culture, though beyond the Biblical book of “Song of Songs,” Shir Hashirim, it doesn’t seem to be the biggest part of Jewish culture.

    And yet, this year, the love story of two Jewish women was the one that ended discrimination against same-sex marriages within the U.S. federal government, in what instantly became one of the most famous Supreme Court decisions. Arguing that case was lawyer Roberta Kaplan, and she shares her story and theirs in Then Comes Marriage: United States v. Windsor and the Defeat of DOMA.

    And then, two women are trying to put love stories into the heart of the Jewish tradition with retellings of folk tales, love letters from prominent Jewish thinkers, and more. Peninnah Schram and Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso discuss their partnered effort, Jewish Stories of Love and Marriage: Folktales, Legends, & Letters.
