2020 Hindsight: A pivotal moment in history, through the eyes of Atlanta’s Jewish women and girlsIn this pivotal moment in history, we know there is so much on the minds of the Jewish women and girls of Atlanta. The struggles. The hopes for the future. The opportunities before us. We know that between the pandemic and protests, mental health and mommying, learning and living, there is much on everyone’s minds, and we want to provide a platform for you to share.
You have a story to tell, and we would love to hear it.
Celebrate the Power of Women’s Voices!
JWFA is proud to announce the release of our much-anticipated anthology – 2020 Hindsight: A pivotal moment in history, through the eyes of Atlanta’s Jewish women and girls.
The book contains essays and poetry from a diverse array of more than 50 women and girls in Atlanta’s Jewish community, ranging in age from seven – 90. Each piece provides a glimpse into the triumphs and challenges these women faced during the past 16 months. JWFA is thrilled to give voice to these deeply moving and impactful experiences that are at once unique and familiar.
The book is available for purchase on Amazon, and all profits help JWFA continue our mission to create positive opportunities and promote social change for Jewish women and girls. Please help us promote the book by posting a review.
On Thursday, May 21st we heard from a panel of authors discussing why they felt compelled to participate in the project, the cathartic nature of writing and how the idea of an anthology developed within JWFA. Panelists include: Zoe Fishman, Victoria Raggs, Jamie Rindsberg, and Rabba Melissa Scholten-Gutierrez, and the discussion was moderated by Dina Fuchs-Beresin.
