Sumfin' For The Ladies

  • Shebrew Magazine is a modern Jewish girl’s review of life and self. It is about everything that we are and everything that we want to be. We are athletes, fashonistas, brats, nice Jewish girls, nasty Jewish girls, radicals, conservatives, activists, lawyers, doctors, ladies of leisure, gay, straight, bisexual and transgendered. We date Jews and non-Jews, people our mothers like and people they hate. We’re orthodox, reform, conservative, reconstructionist, renewal, humanistic and “just” Jewish. We celebrate every holiday and we only make it to synagogue once a year. We’ve been to Israel every summer since we were 13. We’ll never go to Israel. Our Jewish identity is important to us, but we don’t always know what that means.
  • On the complete opposite end of things, Chabad launches a new website for The Jewish Woman.
  • JTA ran a feature this week on Rosh Hodesh: It’s A Girl Thing.
  • They also ran a feature on Yaldah, a new magazine by and for Jewish girls.
  • And in light of all these new publications for Jewish women, The Jewish Women’s Archive has dug up an enthralling excerpt from the long-defunct American Jewess Magazine on freedom and liberation, just in time for Passover.
