Julie Steinberg is the guest speaker for the Feb. 25 Sacramento Branch Program. She will speak at 7 p.m. in the Carmichael Library Meeting Room, 5605 Marconi Ave., on the topic, “ A Mother’s Journey with her Daughter as they Faced Mental Illness.”
Steinberg is a member of the clergy at Congregation B’nai Israel in Sacramento.
She has been enriching B’nai Israel’s education programs and worship services for more than 16 years. She has an extensive background in both music and counseling.
She began her career in music as a young girl in the Peninsula Temple Sholom Youth Choir in Burlingame, where she also sang for many years in a quartet with Temple Sholom’s Cantor Barry Reich. She studied music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and Indiana University.
Steinberg holds a master’s degree in social work and served as a social worker for Jewish Family Services in Sacramento, working with seniors and families in the Sacramento region. She is married to former State Senate President Pro Tem and Sacramento Mayoral candidate Darrell Steinberg and is the mother of mental health advocate Jordana Steinberg and a son, Ari.
In August 2014, Jordana Steinberg was featured the Sacramento Bee feature story, “Jordana Steinberg: ‘A Story of Overcoming’ Mental Illness.” “It’s a story of overcoming, not hardship,” Jordana said in the article.
Please join AAUW Sacramento Branch members to hear Julie share her experiences as a mother in helping her daughter on this journey.
