Juggling Work and Family (3)

The women featured in your cover story are successful and accomplished. Each has a strong support network which often includes a supportive and flexible spouse, a housekeeper and other outside help.

But the twenty-first-century family does not always reflect the traditional makeup portrayed in the profiles. There are many successful Orthodox women who are single parents.

Your article should have also included single mothers who juggle work and family and are able to provide a home with Jewish values for their children.
