No Diving

jGirls+ Magazine Issue 001, Fall 2020

As we enter the new Jewish year, 5781, we’re excited to share our fall issue with you. In the midst of two pandemics, COVID-19 and the much older systemic racism, our way of processing, reflecting, and documenting was to create this special issue. We hope the pages of “No Diving” fill some of the liminal space between sweetness and bitterness. Through creating this issue, we felt the gravity of this particular moment. Yet, we also found comfort in the fact that our ancestors have shouldered immense weight. While they asked questions, while they took to the streets, while they grieved, they too created art.

There is a bliss in her expression. However, there is an underlying notion of innocence in her that almost frightens me.
