Be a part of the story

When we witness videos and images of unrelenting violence against Palestinians and the torment of the hostages still held prisoner in Gaza, this core Jewish and feminist value of the sanctity of every human life can slip from our consciousness, replaced by grief, anger, feelings of helplessness.

May our despair and horror help us remember the importance of life. Without life, all the political posturing in the world is worth nothing.

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."
