Dear Colleagues:

An early Labor Day weekend offers an opportunity to spend time reading the interesting posts on the international psychoanalytic website. It is a time of turmoil in the world and will hopefully offer some respite as well as some insight into the societal issues.

My choices this week are:

1) For those of us who did not know much about the Islamic State – The “Fertile Crescent had been a cradle to strange and fascinating sects” – the post about the “land of lost gods” in the Art Category is a must! Read the rest of this post »

Notes on Bel Kaufman and Sholom Aleichem by Merle Molofsky

SholemAleichemYouTube

(First published on Clio’s Psyche)

I well remember when Bel Kaufman’s book came out, in the 1960’s, with that evocative title, “Up the Down Staircase, a title that somehow encapsulated everything about school as I knew it. I had three marvelous years at P.S. 208 in Brooklyn, fourth, fifth, sixth, and all the rest was up the down staircase….

The stories of Sholem Aleichem, which I read when I was very young, were a major influence on my worldview, my perspective, and my sense of my ethnic identity.

My favorite story was “A Yom Kippur Scandal”. I found two videos on YouTube, Part 1 and Part 2, a telling of the story in Yiddish, with English subtitles. Here are the links, for the curious. If the links don’t work, go to YouTube, type in Sholem Aleichem, A Yom Kippur Scandal, and you will have access to the videos.

I was very interested to read Jacqueline Rose’s article on mothers since the main focus of my work as a psychiatrist has had to do with women who suffer from the strange feelings they have about their babies. In my book Mother, Madonna, Whore: The Idealisation and Denigration of Motherhood (1988), I argue that the main difference between male and female perverse action lies in the aim. Whereas in men the act is aimed at an external part-object, in women it is against themselves: either against their bodies or against objects of their own creation – that is, their babies.
