Join Hadassah as she shares her extraordinary life story from the perspective as an immigrant, an American Jew, a working woman, and a wife, mother, and grandmother on the American political stage. This program is moderated by Naomi Parness. “Lieberman’s new memoir is a candid, thoughtful, and moving account of her journey from war-shattered Czechoslovakia to the heights of US politics. Its pages capture Hadassah’s love of family, respect for tradition, and deep devotion to her adopted country. As a fellow immigrant, I am glad she is sharing her story of pursuing, and achieving, the American dream.” — Madeleine K. Albright, former US Secretary of State.
