Jewish Book Council: Salt & Hon­ey: Jew­ish Teens on Fem­i­nism, Cre­ativ­i­ty, and Tradition

Jewish Book Council

The Jewish Book Council reviewed Salt & Hon­ey: Jew­ish Teens on Fem­i­nism, Cre­ativ­i­ty, and Tradition. 

In this col­lec­tion of per­son­al essays, poet­ry, and visu­al art­work, Jew­ish young adults from the online pub­li­ca­tion jGirls Mag­a­zine con­front dif­fi­cult truths in a chang­ing world. Many of the pieces are unfil­tered, seek­ing to con­nect with oth­er teens rather than defend­ing their points of view to adults. The result is a mov­ing work that encour­ages sol­i­dar­i­ty. Non­bi­na­ry and LGBTQ+ teens speak out, as do bira­cial Jews, dis­abled Jews, and oth­er mar­gin­al­ized Jews who refuse to accept the lim­i­ta­tions of tra­di­tion­al Judaism and aim to cre­ate viable new Jew­ish communities.
