What a fun week!
Wow! What a great week this was! Our appraiser at our February meeting was able to tell us so much about the antiques we brought - we were very impressed by her knowledge. And Bingotini, as always, was a blast! Pictures from Bingotini are already up on our website (check out all the smiling faces), and pictures from the antiques meeting will be up shortly. To see the pictures, go to tassisterhood.org and click on "Photos" on the menu. If you can't find the photos, give Jackie Zev (our technology chair) a call (818-832-9099) and she's sure to be able to figure out what the problem is.
Mark Thursday, March 21 on your calendar for our meeting on Holistic Health: Medical and Recreational Marijuana. And have you RSVP'ed for our Sisterhood Seder on Wednesday, April 3 yet? I hope so, because this event is very popular, and space is limited. Flyers for both events are available on our website on the upcoming events page. Here's a direct link to upcoming events for your convenience: https://www.tassisterhood.org/upcoming-events.html.
Did you know that the theme of the Sisterhood Seder this year is "Viva Pesach! Celebrating Latin American Jews"? Along those lines, we tell you about Muriel Eva Verbitsky de Hunt (1934–1980), a Jewish Argentine cultural anthropologist, academic and writer. In 1953, after graduating in anthropology from the Universidad Femenina de México, she became a researcher at the Escuela Nacional de Antropología. In the 1950s and 1960s, she undertook fieldwork in Oaxaca, first studying the Cuicatec Indians and later conducting research in the Mixtec region under Kimball Romney. She earned an M.A. in 1959 and a Ph.D. in 1962 with her thesis "The Dynamics of the Domestic Group in Two Tzeltal Villages." She moved to the US in the late 1950s, but still spent significant time doing research in Mexico. In the mid-1970s, Hunt stressed the importance of kinship in investigating the anthropology of Mesoamerica, increasingly focusing on regional analysis and publishing "The Transformation of the Hummingbird: Cultural Roots of a Zinacantecan Mythical Poem" (1977). Hunt became a professor at Boston University in 1978. Tragically, her life was cut short by cancer at the age of 45.
