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.
