Coffee Talk 10-15-12

Hadassah Coffee Talk met on Monday, October 15, 2012 in the home of Renee Sandler. Bobbi Handwerger led a discussion on the "Bintel Brief" advice column in the Forward newspaper. Light refreshments were served in the kitchen.  Tobe Snow is Coffee Talk Chair and Vice-President of Programming.

“The Bintel Brief” is an advice column similar to “Dear Abby”, created by Abraham Cahan in 1906 in the Jewish Daily Forward (Der Forvertz), a Yiddish daily newspaper in New York City. In Yiddish, Bintel means “bundle” and brief means “letters”. The Yiddish format of the Forward continued until 1970, but the name of the column remains the same, even in its online version. Bobbi Handwerger, who served as Co-President of Cincinnati Chapter from 2010 to 2012, read a sampling of letters and responses published in the early 20th Century and led a discussion of possible solutions to the problems posed. A few of the Hadassah members read some of the letters to the group.
