Former Congresswoman and Emmy Award Winning Journalist Marjorie Margolies speaking about her family’s journey on instilling respect for all faiths.

Marjorie Margolies’ Jewish father always said that you should aspire to change another’s life. That concept of tikkun olam, was instilled in her from an early age and she was determined to apply the concept to her own family. Marjorie’s family grew exponentially. She adopted two girls from Vietnam and Korea, married a Jewish Congressman with four daughters, and sponsored a Catholic refugee family from Vietnam, bringing the number of kids under her roof to eleven.

Marjorie Margolies is a former member of Congress from Pennsylvania, an Emmy-Award winning journalist, a women’s rights advocate, and a serendipitous mother many times over. She founded Women’s Campaign International (WCI), an organization that provides empowerment training for  women around the world. Marjorie is currently a faculty member at the Annenberg School of Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, and at last count, her family consisted of 11 children and 21 grandchildren.

Jewish LIFE is supported in part by The Jewish Federation of Hunterdon, Somerset and Warren Counties. Presented in partnership with Temple Sholom Sisterhood, Bridgewater and Temple Beth-El Sisterhood, Hillsborough.
