Please join us this Sunday morning at 11 AM for a book reading of a recently published autobiography “My Songs of Now and Then: A Memoir” by our very own Sisterhood member, Rachel Siegel.

Rachel was born in 1924 as Rachel Josefowitz in Germany, then moving to Switzerland in the ’30s to escape the Nazi regime. In 1938 she left Europe for New York.  Rachel attended Simmons College in Boston and  has lived in Ithaca since 1949, working as a Psychotherapist for Family and Children’s Services for many years.  At the age of 55, Rachel decided to take up writing and this memoir is been the culmination of her efforts, including her membership in Irene Zahava’s writing group at Tompkins County Library, and her most recent compilation of reminisces while living at Kendal.
