Barbara Vinick, co-editor of Today I am a Woman: Bat Mitzvah Stories Around the World. Recollections of the first bat mitzvah at the only synagogue in Indonesia, a poignant bat mitzvah memory of World War II Italy, and an American bat mitzvah shared with girls in a Ukrainian orphanage–these are a few of the resonant testimonies about the transition from Jewish girl to Jewish woman collected in “Today I Am a Woman.”

She edited Esther’s Legacy: Celebrating Purim Around the World at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, where she collected and edited the stories for Today I Am a Woman. A resident of Swampscott, MA, she is grandmother to four delightful young girls.
