YAEL DAYAN, the daughter of the legendary Moshe Dayan, is forging her own legacy – a fierce political activist and parliamentarian for the left, a fighter for justice, women’s rights, gay rights and peace. In her new memoir, Transitions, she looks back at her life, scrutinizing it without illusions. Now in her 70s, she admits with touching honesty to missing both the vibrant 20-something she was, and the sober woman she became. With an intimate voice and rich intellect, Ms. Dayan shares the amazing stories that made her the woman she is today.

SUSAN WEIDMAN SCHNEIDER, and Lilith, have been awarded a Polakoff Lifetime Achievement Award in journalism. She has also been honored with Hadassah’s Golden Wreath Award and American Jewish Congress’s Eleanor Roosevelt Prize, and by the American Jewish Press Association, synagogue sisterhoods, B’nai B’rith and Brandeis University. The Israel Women’s Network and American Jewish Congress honored her in the Knesset as one of a handful of women – including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg—to receive the “Jewish Women Who Have Made a Difference” Award.
