successful entrepreneur, manufacturing
women's swimwear, and her mother,
Ronnie, raised the couple's children in a
Reform Jewish household.
"We were not very religious people,"
stresses Gore, adding that her family
belonged to a Reform temple in
Englewood, where they attended High
Holy Day services and she and her
brother went to Hebrew school. She
did not have a bat mitzvah but empha-
sizes that she values her spirituality.
"Being Jewish in this world has, I
believe, always been a difficulty for
people, and I personally don't under-
stand it," she says. "I have visited Israel
and it had to be one of the greatest
trips of my life. I will never forget it.
"I enjoyed it so much that I entertained
thoughts of living there, and I think
about that very often. It's a wonderful
place, and I want to go visit again."
While nostalgia is, and always will
be, a tremendous part of Gore's life,
she has never been content to just gloat
about her past stack of hits, which
have included such winners as "Judy's
Turn to Cry," "She's a Fool," "Maybe I
Know" and her most-requested num-
ber, "You Don't Own Me."
The song rose to No. 2 on
Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1964 and
is often regarded as the first women's
anthem.
And while fans may still relate to the
strawberry blonde singer as an all-
American icon of the '60s, Gore, who
never married, is steadfastly devoted to
being a 21st-century woman, lending
most of her outside energies to numer-
ous social, environmental and women's
organizations.
She credits her advocacy to befriend-
ing feisty and outspoken congress-
woman Bella Abzug, D-N.Y., who, dur-
ing the 1970s, spent three terms as the
first Jewish woman legislator in the U.S.
House of Representatives. In 1998,
Gore was a pallbearer at her funeral.
"I've always been interested in
women's problems and Bella mentored
me and helped me achieve where I
wanted to be in this world and periscope
what needs to be done," Gore says.
"It's hard to be in this world and not
fight for yourself. Women still have a
long way to go, and I'll be a feminist
till the day I die." El

Lesley Gore performs 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, March 29, at the Ford
Community and Performing
Arts Center, as part of the
"American Golden Music
Spectacular Concert." $36-$45.
