Loving Jerusalem, the City of Many Stories

It’s true that the city erupts in violence and that all the cups of coffee and kenafe in the world can’t fix everything or make it all better.

But it’s also true that Jerusalem is a place of possibilities and of miracles––a place with the potential to connect all who love her.

Daughters of the Occupation

“Silence has underscored my life, with my grandmother hiding her Russian Jewish past from her daughters and, in turn, my mother hiding it from me until I was eighteen years old.”

Meet the Jewish Riotgrrrl Behind the World’s Only Drumming Magazine for Women

“The drum industry has notoriously been a self-proclaimed boys club,” says Jewish Riotgrrrl Mindy Abovitz Monk — this is exactly why she decided to create Tom Tom. Lilith talked to her about the magazine’s genesis, fighting for the male dollar, and dressing up as an alien for her Bat Mitzvah.

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."
