The Paley Center for Media recalled America’s Jewish mother during the Aug. 24 event “Groundbreaker: Remembering Gertrude Berg.” Credited with creating the sitcom “The Goldbergs”— both on radio and television — Berg was also the first recipient of an Emmy for lead actress in a comedy series. Between presenting an early episode of “The Goldbergs” and selected clips from Aviva Kempner’s documentary “Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg,” producer Gary David Goldberg (“Family Ties,” “Brooklyn Bridge”) led a discussion on Berg’s legacy, with Kempner, author Glenn D. Smith Jr. (“Something on My Own: Gertrude Berg and American Broadcasting 1929-1956”), director Arthur Hiller and actress Charlotte Rae.
