A Conversation with Marra Gad, Author of The Color of Love

8:00 PM - 9:30 PMZoom

Join the Center for Jewish Education as Marra Gad is interviewed by Temple Beth El Associate Rabbi Dusty Klass.

In her debut memoir, Marra—the “mixed-race Jewish” woman of the subtitle—describes how she chose to help her racist, abusive, estranged Great-Aunt Nette after Nette developed Alzheimer’s. The disease slowly erased Nette’s prejudices, at last allowing Marra to develop a relationship with the woman who had shunned her in her youth.

Originally from Chicago, Gad is now a Los Angeles-based television and film producer. She remains devoted to Judaism despite the racism and rejections she has often encountered in Jewish spaces. Gad also writes about her rejection in African American communities.
