America needs to talk about miscarriage

So much gratitude to all of the people working to address the stigma around miscarriages. Miscarriages are extremely common, happening in 10 to 20 percent of all known pregnancies. But how many times do you hear it spoken about or portrayed in the media?

The experience is incredibly common. It’s time to lift the stigma.

Esther Bejarano, 96, Dies; Auschwitz Survivor Fought Hate With Hip-Hop

May her memory be an inspiration to us all.

Esther Bejarano, who passed away at the age of 96, played accordion in the women’s orchestra at Auschwitz & formed a band with her children to sing antiwar and Jewish resistance songs. In her 80s, joined a hip-hop group that spread an antifascist message.

She played the accordion in the camp’s orchestra. Decades later, she spoke out against fascism and racism, using music as well as words.

Grief, Weddings; Open First

"[W]hat do we do when things fall apart? How do we recover? And will we ever recover?" From Rabbi Jen Gubitz, the final piece in our Tisha B'Av blog series:

So what do we do when things fall apart? And how do we recover? Will we ever recover? I don’t know. I hope we do, but I have no idea how long it will take. But I think it starts with crying.

I Know Nothing About Tisha B’av

Tisha B’av is a holiday about mourning. @Rebecca S'manga Frank wries how she often feels like she's in a perpetual state of mourning.

"I am a Black Jew and I am maybe more whole since a white Jewish majority started inviting me to share my art and myself in a way that it never had before. I have connected and collaborated with more Jews of color and Black Jews than I ever dreamt was possible. But every time I receive an invitation there is a twinge in my body and I remember how we got here. "

Tisha B’av is a holiday about mourning. I often feel like I’m in a perpetual state of mourning.

When I started becoming less religious in my 20s, I thought maybe there was a book in it. There was so much to unpack: the guilt I felt getting into a car on a Saturday afternoon, my stomach issues when I first began eating non-kosher chicken, my anger at a boyfriend who wanted to keep […]

Find out the compelling story of early media #influencer Maud Gonne. Her great aunt, Countess of Sizeranne, who took Maud under her wing to teach her that a woman’s power came from confidence and careful presentation: one’s choice of hat, of perfume, of dress, of style and grace mattered. From her, Maud learned to use her beauty and allure as a tool to mesmerize and manipulate men and, as her activism grew, to captivate audiences on her speaking tours in support of Irish independence. Maud shocked contemporaries by having two children out of wedlock. Her son Sean MacBride continued her life’s work on behalf of human rights and political prisoners and co-founded Amnesty International. In 1974, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Inclusion in arts and entertainment is important. The things we do to entertain ourselves, our games, tv shows, movies, affect how we think of ourselves and how others see us. I've always been into historical role-playing games, but I have long thought there was a lack of content from a Jewish perspective. So, I have started a group for sharing and collaborating on Jewish oriented content in RPGs, both D&D and other systems. If you play or create online or tabletop games, check it out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/695717371330284
Today is Henrietta Szold's 160th birthday - academic and activist, she acquired the affectionate title, Mother of the Yishuv. The kerfuffle surrounding Dr Jill Biden’s title made me think about Henrietta afresh. What title for the Jewish woman who sacrifices her life for the Jewish people? What title for all the Jewish women who, as it says in the Yekum Purkan prayer said on Shabbat mornings, support the community with acts of tzedakah (righteous charity)? Find out more about Henrietta, and perhaps you can think of an appropriate title for the modern day Henriettas. Susan Weidman Schneider Naomi Danis

Finally a book has come out that all Jewish People must read. It explains that neither Jewish or any man had anything to do with Jesus's Death. Also explain what happened to Jesus when he went against God's wishes and went upon the mountain with Satan. DO YOU KNOW WHY? Why Did Jesus say… Pick Up the Serpent and Drink All Deadly Things? Why did Jesus tell the rich man… To see Heaven, you must obey the Ten Commandments and give to the Needy, yet preachers tell you that you are forgiven for your sins? Why did Jesus say… Don’t call me Good Master for there is none good but God. but later said I am the way and the light, and you can only get to Heaven through me? If Jesus is God why when he was on the cross, cry out God, God, why have you forsaken me? If Jesus was dying for our sins (which the Bible never said so) then why would he say God forsaken him? A God can move mountains and hold back seas, why was Jesus not able to remove a small nail from his hand. How did Mary walk right pass Jesus and not notice him? Why did his disciples go up to him and ask Stranger, have you seen Jesus? What really happened to Jesus when he went up on the mountain with Satan? There are many questions about the Bible and finally there is a book that explains all. “ I LOVE GOD by Gregory St. James Mundy”
