Jewish mothers

The stereotype of the Jewish mother has fed generations of psychoanalysts and inspired many autobiographic and satiric books.
The following playlist is a tribute to all Jewish mothers. The Jewish mother seen through the eyes of her child ...

The mother is omnipresent in the Jewish imagery.
" The Jewish mother is truly an institution just like the tablets of the law. Besides, it is said that when Moses brought back these tablets from the Sinai Mount, his wife Sephora checked what God established as laws, and when she saw the 5th commandment that says: " respect and honour your father and your mother " she added after: "especially your mother my son".
