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.
This story "Shanah Tovah from the Yiddishe Mame" was written by Yiddishe Mame.
