Going Where We’re Growing:
Including the Multiracial Jewish Community
by Yosef Abramowitz
I am simply a fellow traveler and am here by virtue of two unlikely accidents of history: my son, Adar, was adopted from Ethiopia, and I am CEO of Jewish Family & Life!, the leading multimedia non-profit in Jewish life. Both of these life turns came about because of my commitment to communal change, as well as my activism on behalf of oppressed Jewry and in aid of the anti-apartheid movement. As a producer, I have been especially mindful to ensure that the images of normative Jews are diverse, especially in BabagaNewz, our children’s magazine that is in 800 schools across the country.
