SHARE HER STORY

a Purim Campaign by Jewish Multiracial Network, Jewish Women’s Archive, and Repair the World

Most women’s stories never make it into history. After all, who would have thought that the tale of Esther, a Jewish woman of color risking everything for her people, would have been remembered for thousands of years? It takes love and dedication to keep our legacies alive. So, in the spirit of Esther’s story, we are sharing stories of modern Jewish women of color, Mizrahi, and Sephardi women, powerful Jewish leaders, whose efforts to strengthen and broaden the Jewish community deserve to be celebrated, emulated, and remembered.

Stay involved with the #ShareHerStory campaign by reading, watching, and listening to the powerful leaders we featured in the campaign. Download our Read/Watch/Listen guide here.

Happy Purim 2018/5778, from Jewish Multiracial Network, Jewish Women’s Archive, and Repair the World.
