One of the Earliest Jewish Women Writers Subject of Gratz College Lunch & Learn usinesswoman, author and mother – sounds like the profile of a contemporary superwoman, but in this case, it’s the description of a 17th century German Jew – Glikl of Hameln. Not only was Glikl (sometimes written “Gluckel”) among the earliest Jewish women authors, but she also holds the distinction of being the first Jewish woman to publish an autobiography. An intriguing historical figure, Glikl is the subject of a lunch-and-learn program at Gratz College on Wednesday, December 16. Married at age 14, Glikl ultimately played an important role in her husband’s jewelry and precious metals business. She also ran the house and raised the couple’s 12 children (A total of 14 children were born, but two died at very young ages.), including arranging their marriages when the time came. After her husband’s death, Glikl assumed control of the family business, and eventually began writing a memoir, with the goal of creating a family record for her children. A gifted storyteller, Glikl ended up creating a firsthand account of life in the 17th and early 18th centuries, written with depth, humor and wisdom. As Dr. Joseph Davis, Gratz College professor and presenter at the lunch-and-learn explains, “Glikl’s memoir is lively and readable, and it gives a very vivid portrait of what it was like to be a Jewish woman in that period. Glikl is one of the most famous, and frankly one of the most interesting, Ashkenazi Jewish authors in that century.” A professor at Gratz College for over 20 years, Dr. Davis is director of the graduate program in Jewish Studies. With characteristic humor, he underscores Glikl’s historical significance as follows: “Plenty of Christian women authors, Chinese women poets, but barely a Jewish woman who wrote more than a letter to her brother. And then, there’s Glikl, who tells you everything about herself. She is up there with Rebecca Gratz in the short list of accomplished Jewish women before 1920.” According to Professor Davis, interest in Glikl has been increasing, “with a steady stream of new research every year.” In fact, his own work on Glickl is included in a book that is to

“A Magical Grassical Christmas”

Local Minister Elected National Board President of Americans United for Separation of Church and State

Continued from front page

(Steve Vai Band) and Jason (present First Violinist with The Philadelphia Orchestra) – and Philadelphia Orchestra Timpanist Don Liuzzi on drums and percussion, University of the Arts Faculty member Kevin MacConnell (bass), Jordan Tice (acclaimed young flat picking guitarist), and Mike Munford (International Bluegrass Association’s 2013-14 Banjo Musician of the Year). The concert is a celebration of the band’s rich diversity of styles with a selection of holiday repertoire, including original pieces and popular traditional songs. Recently, the DePue Brothers have enjoyed inviting young guests to join them on stage. The Sellersville concert will feature the PYO and YOBC high school aged musicians on the second half of their program. They will perform on three tunes — Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride,” the classic “O Holy Night” and an original entitled “Plow Train.” The title of their 2014 album, “When It’s Christmas Time,” is a reference to a carol originally written by the brothers’ father, Wallace DePue, Sr., which was later enriched with an arrangement by Alex DePue and included on the album. The brothers, who have been playing Christmas programs together since they could hold violins, recorded the CD as a loving tribute to their father. The album, which has been played on over 120 radio stations nationally including Sirius Radio, features such popular songs as “Sleigh Ride,” “O Holy Night,” “Good King Wenceslas,” “The Christmas Song,” a special arrangement of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” bringing a jazzed up bluegrass shuffle to this classic holiday tune and a banjo-led medley of renaissance era Carols. In addition there is a mix of standard classical arrangements of “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” and “Ave Maria,” as well as a more recent composition entitled “The Fat Man.” The DePue Brothers Band encompasses a vivid blend of bluegrass, classical, and rock genres. They coined the term “grassical” as the best description of their style. Each of the four DePue brothers is a classical virtuoso in his own right, and brings rich and diverse talents to their sound. Performing with the band is a family affair that they fit in amongst their individual musical endeavors and duties – Jason with The Philadelphia Orchestra; Alex with his duo work with DePue/DeHoyos, former band work with famed guitarist Steve Vai, and a fiddling champion in several states (California, Alabama, Ohio, Michigan); Wallace with his company, ConcertInstruments.com, his former associate concert master work of The Philly POPS, and now Florida based orchestras; and Zachary, Concertmaster of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and a founding member of the classically trained garage band/trio Time For Three. Each band member brings impressive credentials to the band, with manager and drummer Don Liuzzi being the principal timpanist of The Philadelphia Orchestra. As a family they have been making music together for over 30 years. They were named “Musical Family of America” in 1989 by presidential decree, were the subject of a nationally televised PBS documentary in 1993, Jason and younger brother Zach were featured in the film documentary “Music From the Inside Out” highlighting musicians in The Philadelphia Orchestra in 2005. Alex has appeared on Grammy-nominated Steve Vai albums and the critically acclaimed concert DVD with Steve Vai from 2009. Their first album as brothers, “Classical Grass,” sold out of its first printing. In 2004 they formed the present band configuration coming together with legendary banjoist Tony Trischka, Bucks County native flat picking Mark Cosgrove, Don Liuzzi, and Kevin MacConnell, recording their first album in 2009 entitled “Weapons of Grass Construction.” “When It’s Christmas Time” is available on CD Baby, iTunes, and all the online stores affiliated with Tune Core.

Jones has been a member of Americans United for 30 years. While in Columbia, he founded a local chapter of Americans United. Along with three other clergy, he became a plaintiff in AU’s successful lawsuit to halt the legislature’s production of a specialty license plate containing Christian imagery.

He served as the minister of Americans United for Separation of four congregations in North and South Carolina Church and State. and in Texas before coming to Pennsylvania. In addition to being an advocate for the separation of church and state, Jones has been a strong voice for gay and lesbian equality, racial justice, universal health care and reproductive freedom at public rallies and demonstrations and in newspaper and magazine opinion pieces. Before leaving South Carolina, he urged the removal of the Confederate flag from the statehouse. Jones succeeds Rabbi Merrill Shapiro of Temple Beth Shalom in Flagler County, FL, who served as AU board president from 2009-2015. The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United, welcomed Jones’ election. “Americans United has enjoyed a track record of strong leadership from religious and secular communities,” Lynn said. “As national elections loom and church-state issues continue to roil the culture, we are fortunate to have someone with the stature and vision of Neal Jones leading our board during challenging times.”

esley Enhanced Living Main Line’s inclusiveness transformation continued as a new interfaith chapel received priestly blessings during a dedication ceremony on November 24. The new chapel will enable all residents to celebrate their religions in a dignified space that can be used for Catholic mass, Shabbat services, scripture studies and Protestant services. Rabbi Meryl Crean, Chaplain of WEL Main Line and Monsignor Ralph Chieffo of St. Mary Magdalene Church in Media, PA, led the chapel’s service and blessing. The dedication service featured songs, scripture readings and remarks from Joseph Paesani of Holy Innocents Parish of Philadelphia. The Parish donated an altar, lectern, table and candlesticks to the chapel. “It’s been wonderful to welcome a diverse group of residents to our community,” said executive director of WEL Main Line, Linda Sterthous. “This new chapel allows all residents to feel at home regardless of their religious beliefs.” Residents can still enjoy numerous traditions that have existed at the community for years, including a dining facility for residents who keep kosher, as well as celebrations of Jewish cultural programs and worship services.

Eager to support families in need within the communities it serves, Narberth Ambulance has provided 50 turkeys, all the trimmings and dessert to area families in need. or most families on Thanksgiving, stuffing themselves with turkey and all the trimmings is an annual tradition. But for other families, there is little or no food to share around the table during the holiday. According to current statistics, one out of every four people in the Greater Philadelphia area lives in poverty and is considered to be food insecure. Eager to support families in need within the communities it serves, Narberth Ambulance has provided 50 turkeys, all the trimmings and dessert to area families in need. This is the fourth year that the nonprofit pre-hospital care and medical transport organization has purchased and delivered turkey dinners to families in need in its coverage areas: Lower Merion, Narberth, Conshohocken and West Conshohocken. The program is spearheaded by Marie Eckman, Lieutenant of Operations. “Marie does a fabulous job organizing this event,” said Chris Flanagan, Chief of Operations. “She has identified and partnered with local organizations in each area served by Narberth Ambulance to ensure an equitable distribution of Thanksgiving meals.” According to Eckman, the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving were busy days, with one shift of volunteers devoting time to packing up turkey dinners on Monday, and another helping to load them into Narberth Ambulance’s vehicles for delivery on Tuesday. “The hecticness is all worth it,” says Eckman. “It’s an honor and a privilege to support the communities that have been so supportive of Narberth Ambulance.” Narberth Ambulance is a nonprofit organization committed to providing high quality prehospital care and medical transportation to the 95,000 community members living in Lower Merion, Narberth, Conshohocken and West Conshohocken.
