Your Six Word Gift For Dad
With Father’s Day just around the corner, today is your last day to submit your six word tribute on your Jewish father or grandfather.
The Forward’s six-word memoir project is conducted in conjunction with Larry Smith, editor of SMITH Magazine, home of the Six-Word Memoir®. Larry and the Forward staff will pick our 12 favorites and publish them in the Forward for Father’s Day. Those people will receive a copy of the new book “Oy! Only Six? Why Not More? Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life,” published in collaboration with the Jewish cultural mavens at Reboot.
For inspiration, here are a few examples about Jewish fathers culled from SMITH Magazine’s library of six-word memoirs. For more examples, check out smithmag.net/jewish. Please enter the form below before 6:00 today.
