The Loss Of Femininity (Part II)

Posted on: July 8th, 2009

SectionsMagazineArchives

Last week I wrote about how female caregivers are affected by the role reversals that take place as they care for husbands with chronic illness. As the husband's illness progresses, and he is able to do less and less for himself, his wife ends up doing more. And, as she continues to take on the traditional male roles, her loss of femininity may escalate. When this happens, it is reflected in how she cares or perhaps in how she stops caring and taking care of herself.

Polish Prisoners To Help Maintain Jewish Cemeteries

As I have reported many times over the past 12 years that I have been writing this column, one of the major problems in Poland today, even greater then anti-Semitism, is the poor condition of Jewish historical sites. Many of the cemeteries are overgrown and synagogue buildings are in disrepair.

 

The Loss Of Femininity (Part I)

Posted on: July 1st, 2009

SectionsMagazineArchives

For most women, care-giving means taking on many of the roles that were routinely filled by their husbands, in addition to those things they were already responsible for. For many of these women, this has been hard to deal with. Not just because of the difficult physical nature of these new, additional roles, or even the tremendous emotional burden that has been added to the women's daily routine.

Recently, as I exited my car in a crowded parking lot, I saw an elderly woman approach an elderly man as he was getting out of his car. Wagging her finger in the man's face, the woman yelled. "Do you know why I'm here? I'mhere to tell you that you are not a very nice man!"

The medium created will constitute a bridge between the history of Polish Jewish towns and the contemporary, multicultural world.

These letters are in response to a letter written by a woman whose daughter is having difficulty getting dates because her father has a chronic illness. She also pointed out that there is an assumption that life in their home is depressing because of the illness. These responses deal with both issues, but how they contradict the myth of depression is particularly interesting.

The Jewish community in Ostroleka Poland was first established in the 17th century and like all other communities in Poland saw good times and bad.

I have spent the last two articles discussing some common joys and problems we face as the holidays come and go. Baby Boomer women, growing up in the era (or should I say, "with the error,") of the self imposed attitude of "we can do it all" without help, have for the most part not discussed the difficulty of the holidays with anyone except other boomers.

Malky knew it would mean more demands on her time, and she understood that being an on-site caregiver was not going to be easy. But Malky loved her in-laws and wanted them with her for Pesach.
