The American-Jewish actress and neuroscientist who played the title character in the TV hit ‘Blossom’ has pulled out of this year’s Limmud.
A spokeswoman Mayim Bialik, 41, said she was no longer able the four-day educational event, saying: “Unfortunately, Mayim’s work schedule has changed. She sends her regrets and hopes to be a part of this event next year.”
Bialik shot to fame in the late ‘80s, portraying a young Bette Midler in ‘Beaches,’ and even appeared in a Michael Jackson video, but she matched her acting with serious study, and went on to complete her PhD in neuroscience in 2007.
While disappointed, organisers of Limmud Conference 2016 said the Birmingham event, which is being held 25-29 December, would still boast over 1,300 sessions from 600 presenters.
