New Flavors to Spice Up Your Passover and Beyond

Contrary to the pressure we often put on ourselves to achieve perfection in what we prepare and serve… it helps to keep in mind that Passover is not meant to be a performance.

Death Passed Me Over

By recreating my trauma onscreen, I understood Passover in a new way.

I Sing the Body Asexual

I am a sex-positive feminist and a sex-neutral asexual and a Modern Orthodox woman all at once. I am a sexually liberated woman.

Birthing Maccabiah

I can think of nothing more exciting than at 45, in a place that I consider my home away from home, to be reborn as a serious table tennis competitor.

Look Ma, I’m Trans!

In a bittersweet turn of fate, it was my family’s chauvinism that cemented my social status as a woman.

Poetry: History

A Yiddish-inflected expression of pride with rich wisdom and “humor to spare.”

Blood and Boundaries

A Re-Reading of the Torah portion Tazria-Metzora for Survivors of Sexual Violence

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."
