The Quintessential Jewish Mother:
Gertrude Berg as Molly Goldberg
 

Gertrude Berg (1899-1966) an iconic figure on television from the late 1940's to the mid l950s, wrote, produced and acted in the hugely successful TV show, The Goldbergs.  

As Molly Goldberg, she became the beloved immigrant mother who was capable of common sense wisdom and unswerving devotion to this "golden land." Her compassion for all peoples made her an excellent emissary for such American values as kindness, goodness  and patriotism.  She conveyed the hope that a war-weary people could once again focus on their families and communities.   next  ►►
