My Jewish Learning blogs, produced in partnership with other Jewish nonprofits, explore various aspects of modern Jewish life.
A blog by Be’chol Lashon, which gives voice to the racial, ethnic and cultural diversity of Jewish identity and experience. The original multicultural people, Jews have lived around the world for millennia. Today, with globalism and inclusion so key in making choices about engaging in Jewish life, Jewish& provides a forum for personal reflection, discussion, and debate.
Keshet is a national organization that works for LGBTQ equality in Jewish life. The organization equips Jewish leaders with tools to build LGBTQ-affirming communities, creates spaces for queer Jewish teens to feel valued and develop their own leadership skills, and mobilizes the Jewish community to fight for LGBTQ justice. Keshet’s blog spotlights this work, as well as the voices of LGBTQ Jews, our families, and allies.
A dynamic forum for exploring contemporary issues in the Jewish world and beyond. Written by rabbis from different denominations, viewpoints and geographic locales, Rabbis Without Borders is a project of Clal – The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership.
Celebrates the stories, people, and experiences – past and present – of Jewish life in the American South. Hosted by the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life, posts come from educators, students, rabbis, parents, artists, and many other “visitors-to and daily-livers-of” the Southern Jewish experience. From road trips to recipes to reflections, we’ll explore a little bit of everything – well, at least all things Southern and/or Jewish. Shalom, y’all!
A tribute to all things Jewish sleepaway camp. Hosted by Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC), this blog is written by campers, alumni, parents and camp professionals and is a place to talk about parenting, camp fun, projects, crafts, recipes and more – all tied back to Jewish holidays, traditions and, of course, camp!
Explored gender and religion in the Jewish community. Named for Deborah the Prophetess, “the woman of torches,” the blog highlighted the passion and fiery leadership of Jewish feminists, while evoking the powerful image of feminists “passing the torch” to a new generation. Featuring the insights and personal reflections of women and men seeking to create a more gender-equitable Jewish world, The Torch was a project of JOFA, the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance.
