  1. yes, in fact Yolanda Shoshana is Jewish. She is leading a session called:
    Voices of Jewish Women of Color – What do you know about Jewish women who are not white and Ashkenazi?
    This workshop will discuss Jewish women from different races and cultures. We will explore cultural differences and look at how the women are marginalized within the Jewish community. Also, we will look at the accomplishments of Jewish women of color in society.
    Everyone should check it out!
