5/2 CEERES of Voices: On the Landing Yenta Mash

Yenta Mash (1922-2013) was a giant among women
writing in Yiddish. Drawn from her own tumultuous
life, her stories trace an arc across continents, across
upheavals and regime changes, and across the phases
of a woman’s life from girlhood to old age. Mash documents
a lost world of Eastern European Jewish life,
Siberian exile, Soviet Moldova, and the challenges of
immigrant life in Israel.
