"Quotable" draws inspiration from 317 Jewish women.
Special to the Jewish News
laine Bernstein Partnow has had a mission
since the 1970s — calling attention to
statements made by notable women, from
biblical to modern times. Her fifth edition of The
Quotable Woman, published in 2001, became a
tome that had grown with each publication.
This year, Partnow is coming out with a new
book of statements that she found elicited her per-
sonal emotions. The Quotable Jewish Woman:
Wisdom, Inspiration 6- Humor from the Mind and
Heart (Jewish Lights Publishing: $24.95) turned
out to be a fun way to explore her own roots.
Partnow found statements that resonated.with
her through books, magazines and the Web.
"I want to raise the visibility
of women and used my own
sensibilities to do that," says
Partnow, 60, who also does pre-
sentations about a handful of
those she has referenced. "The
latest book has 2,400 quota-

Partnow has divided state-

Appearance," "Community &
Citizenship" and "Money,
Business & Economics." At the
end of the book, she has short
biographies on the people
quoted — writers, entertainers,

for sure is that I would
rather have a child than a

"The Quotable Jewish Woman" offers
reflections on Jewish motherhood.
"Only a mother remem-
bers her children's land-
marks as her own."
