Kentuckians of Jewish and Arab heritage probably have much more in common with each other than they do with the average resident of the Commonwealth. Lexington author Rosie Moosnick says that’s especially true for women. Moosnick’s book, “Arab and Jewish Women of Kentucky,” is a collection of their stories. In gathering material, the University of Kentucky sociologist drew upon interviews with Jewish and Arab Women, and upon her own experiences growing up in Lexington. Moosnick spoke with reporter Charles Compton.
Rosie Moosnick is author of “Arab and Jewish Women of Kentucky, Stories of Accommodation and Audacity.” It’s published by University Press of Kentucky.
