The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Marra Gad

Writer and producer

Marra Gad’s 2020 memoir, The Color of Love: A Story of a Mixed-Race Jewish Girl, is the multilayered story of her life as a biracial Jew. Although Gad experienced a life with loving parents, there were also hostile relatives and Jewish communities that were not always welcoming. Adopted as an infant, Gad was born to a white Jewish mother and a black father. The rabbi who arranged the adoption had no idea the child’s father was black and told Gad’s parents they could refuse the child. Instead, the Gads knew deep in their souls that Marra was their daughter – it is their love that illuminates the book’s narrative. (Photo: HEC Books / Screenshot)
