The funny and surprising story of radio and television pioneer Gertrude Berg. Creator, star and writer (12,000 scripts!) of the hit sitcom The Goldbergs, Berg was a beloved trailblazer, the Oprah of her day. Berg’s blend of comedy and social commentary—with Jewish characters at the center—endeared audiences and made her an American cultural icon. Deborah L. Bobrow, Mandel JCC Jewish Film Festival Coordinator, leads a post-viewing discussion.
