Judith Cabaud was born in Brooklyn, New York to a family of second generation European Jewish immigrants.
After her Bachelor of Arts at New York University (Phi Beta Kappa), she studied literature in Paris at the Sorbonne and natural
science at the Faculté d’Orsay. Converted to Catholicism, she married a Frenchman and brought up their nine children in the heart
of rural France. Ever since she passed her certification exam (CAPES), she has taught English, as well as American and British civilization
at the lycée and university in Vichy and Clermont-Ferrand. She has given many lectures mainly on cultural subjects in order to share her life
A music lover since her childhood and an enthusiast for French classical theater, especially Molière, Corneille and Racine,
she writes articles and critiques, among others for the Bayreuth Festival. Her knowledge of Wagner made her discover the musician’s muse,
Mathilde Wesendonck, for whom Judith wrote the first biography. She has published a small part of her work in novels and short stories which
are just so many travels conceived of through English and French literature. Her writings on the chief rabbi Zolli remain the fruit
of a spiritual quest that seems to have come of a necessity and continues to accompany her on her search for the inner life.
