After 20 years of collecting her stories, Alan Strozenberg created Yiddishe Mame, a character lovingly based on his authentic, witty and caring Jewish Mom.
“The situations between me and my Yiddishe Mame were so filled with authenticity and absurdity that I began to jot them down. I did it for more than 20 years and the stories were so unbelievable that I thought, my Yiddishe Mame can’t be real. She can only be a character.”
YM is based on my Yiddishe Mame. But i truly believe that YM is also “Your Mother.” Every mother. Because ultimately, all good mothers are the same.
