“'Polyamory has actually made me more Jewish,' notes a polyamorous psychotherapist who regularly hosts Shabbat with her partners. 'My main way of connecting to Judaism is through ritual. It’s part of my life and important that partners join me in that.'"

"Why are you silent?" 

Tens of thousands of people are asking UN Women this critical question.  The United Nations’ organization that allegedly fights to end sexual violence has still refused to condemn Hamas’ horrific sexual crimes on Oct. 7 or recognize that they even happened.

This silence prompted a group of Israeli women, including some with family members currently being held captive, to launch #MeToo_UNless_UR_a_Jew. The campaign’s goal is to gather one million signatures demanding that UN Women release a statement condemning Hamas’ human rights violations, and the terrorists’ sexual assaults against Israeli women and girls.
