Marjorie Margolies’ father always said everyone should aspire to change another’s life. From an early age, she was determined to apply that concept to her own family, and she did – many times over.
Prior to serving in Congress, Margolies adopted two girls from Vietnam and Korea. She married Congressman Ed Mezvinsky, who had four daughters. They had two sons, and sponsored a Catholic refugee family from Vietnam, bringing the number of kids under their roof to eleven.
They kept a Jewish home while instilling in their eleven children respect for all faiths. The family celebrated Hannukah and Christmas, spent Sunday mornings at Catholic and Jewish religious school, held Passover seders, and attended Catholic masses. It was an organic way to make everyone feel included and respectful of other belief systems.
Margolies will share the story of this journey, and the wisdom, life lessons, advice, and inspiration that came along with it.
