A PLACE FOR ALL
This is a platform to share your Jewish journey, however that looks, feels, tastes etc. Together, we’ll explore what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century.
We believe that it is the ability of an individual to determine their definition and relationship to their Jewish self. We believe that it is within our own ability to create a Jewish space for ourselves and to connect with others in community. We believe that differences are beautiful and deserve to be discussed and celebrated.
And lastly, we believe in YOU!
How You Can Get Involved
You can get involved today by simply accepting yourself and the ways you feel Jewish. This isn’t radical but it also isn’t widely promoted. You are part of a network strong enough to impact positive change in our own lives and the lives of others.
You are unique and everyone should know it. As you understand your Jewish space share it with others. Try some of the activities on this site and spread the word on social media using #myjewishlife
