Here’s something to lift Melanie’s spirits. Or perhaps anger her further. Though I “defended” Ann Coulter two posts ago from the big whoop about her statements regarding Jews on CNBC’s… Read more »

The Virtues of…Guilt

You probably don’t have to think too hard to guess what my feelings are of the stereotypes of Jewish women as guilt-inducing shrews. I’m not much of a fan, to… Read more »

A century-old feminist Sephardi novel is back...and it’s incredible 💫 

Lilith fiction editor Yona Zeldis McDonough says: "Mazaltob tells the story of a young woman raised in the Judería or Jewish quarter of Tetouan, Morocco, at the turn of the 20th-century. Sixteen-year-old Mazaltob is betrothed to José, a rather crude sort from her own community. But she is in love with Jean, who is French, half-Jewish, and an unconventional free spirit.  Her competing desires—loyalty to her family, faith and culture, or freedom to love whom she chooses—form the spine of this novel, which exposes the chafing constraints that bound North African Jewish women poised on the cusp of emancipation and decolonization."
