Girlhood

Thank you, Alexa Hulse and New Voices Magazine for this incredible piece highlighting the work jGirls+ is doing to give Jewish teens a voice online. We proudly hold this space where Jewish girls and nonbinary teens can safely and creatively explore who they are.

In the absence of information from academics about Jewish girlhood, I decided to see what they were saying about themselves. This led me to explore how digital spaces, specifically jGirls, gives queer Jewish girls and non-binary youth the opportunity and space to resist invisibility by talking about their experiences and producing knowledge that is unique to them — and desperately needed.
