"One of my earliest spatial memories is of navigating the crowd at an Oneg Shabbat. When you’re really small you can dart around people to get to the cookies!” 

In Lilith's Summer 2022 issue, @juliaquinnauthor spoke to @sarahmseltzer about her unapologetic love for romance novels, sexism in media coverage—and how everyone could use a slice of happily ever after.

From our spring 2024 issue on Disability, read "Sophie's Bag Mitzvah," written by her friend (and current Lilith intern!) @ramona.saft, linked in our bio. We absolutely LOVE this image from Sophie's ileostomy bag-mitzvah celebration! 

"Sophie’s bag-iversary is always a big event with a ritual cookie cake and games like pin-the-bag-on-Sophie, and an ileostomy bag decorating activity. Usually there’s a theme like the surprise waffle party or the afternoon tea, but this year was extra special. It is not just Sophie’s bag-iversary, it is her ‘bag mitzvah.’ As per Jewish tradition, the twelfth year of Sophie’s ileostomy bag deserves a simcha. As Sophie explained to me, her actual bat mitzvah welcomed her into Jewish adulthood. But, her bag mitzvah marks what she describes as the rebirth she experienced after getting her surgery twelve years ago. After getting her ileostomy, Sophie grew into her present herself, the most caring and witty person I know. Now this version of Sophie becomes a Jewish adult too."
