Synopsis
From the time she followed her big brother to kindergarten and got herself accepted a year ahead of time, Helen Fried Kirshblum Goldstein has pursued her goals with pluck, verve, and determination. In this forthright and engaging memoir, Helen looks through a lens that encompasses most of the last century and moves into the present one, telling the story Always Up Front. As president of Women's League for Conservative Judaism and a leader in the Jewish organizational world the author encountered such figures as Nelson Rockefeller, Golda Meir, Abraham Heschel, David Ben-Gurion, Teddy Kollek, Arthur Goldberg, Menachem Begin, Elie Wiesel, and involvement in such events as the creation and development of the State of Israel, the Civil Rights Movement, the Feminist Movement and its impact on Conservative Judaism, and open admissions policies in higher education were consequences of that MOVE and are described here with vivid recall.
