Israeli protestors demonstrating against the Netanyahu government’s assault on democracy repeatedly chant
boosha (shame). In her new book, Shanda (Yiddish for shame or disgrace), acclaimed writer and
activist Letty Cottin Pogrebin candidly examines shame both in her private life and in American, Jewish, and
Israeli public life.
On this Americans for Peace Now webinar, Letty discusses her book and the shanda prism through which she – like many liberal American Jews – views Israeli government policies.
A longtime member of APN’s Board of Directors and former Chair of the Board, Letty Cottin Pogrebin is a co-founder of Ms. Magazine, the author of twelve books and numerous articles, and a leading activist focusing on feminist, Jewish, and Israeli affairs.
