The Ima Bloggers

I'm thrilled to introduce Ima Shalom's newest contributors--5 of the coolest, smartest, funniest mamas you'd ever want to meet.

Maya is trying to start a tenure track position and be a new and single mother at the same time in a new city in the context of an Orthodox community.

Gluckel of Manhattan is Jewish professional mother with a chip on her shoulder, but not a big one. A son, a husband and a "to-do" list a mile long.

Since beginning her career as a stay at home mommy to a dog, a cat, and beautiful 23 month old girl, "Keep it real" has become Mahotma Mama's motto. And if that means letting her toddler watch The Price is Right so she can wash the dog because it rolled around in something else's poop, so be it.
Mamamia is the mother of two children, a son (almost 3) and a daughter (7 months). She is a Jewish educator and public speaking trainer in DC.

Joyous Jewess is Ima to 9-month-old boy/girl twins who keep her laughing and running. An escaped academic and a second generation feminist, she works in public history and Jewish education.

And then there's me. Ima Shalom is a work-at-home-stay-at-home mom living the post-denominational life with her son and Orthodox husband.
