Reflecting on the Protests in Portland

On the ground and in the streets in Portland this summer.

Portland is one of the whitest cities in America, with an extremely racist history. So who would have ever thought we would be the city to watch during the modern-day civil rights movement?

Feminist Farming: Learning Teshuvah from the Earth

"At the beginning of each set of community gardening hours, I tell the parts of the story of the Central District that I know. About how Black and Jewish people were redlined to this area. About how the Jews left in their own white flight. About how developers are eating up the land like they won’t ever get enough." - mada anne

Feminism, Judaism, and the wisdom of the land give me something to hold onto when I am destabilized by the effort of confronting these contradictions. Specifically, I’ve been exploring the concept ...

Rosh Hashanah Forgiveness for #MeToo Offenders? Not Yet.

Two years later, what do you think?

Sharrona Pearl writes, "Abusers should have to live with the fundamental knowledge of what they have done. The first step would for them would be awareness of the depths and horrors of their transgressions—awareness so deep that forgiving themselves might not be possible." #LilithArchives #RoshHashanah #YomKippur

Many of these accused abusers have not performed anything close to adequate teshuva. Nor, really, has society at large.

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”

Wonderful.
Often, career women stand on the shoulders of other women in their lives who served as mentors, role models, pillars of support ... such as their mothers. This letter is from my bold writer and teacher mom, soliciting freelance work as a young mother in the 1950's. I was her "baby girl" -- and I still miss and need her. 280 Riverside Drive New York 25, N.Y. January 15, 1957 Gentlemen: I should like to know if you have any free-lance copy-editing and proofreading work to be done. If so, I am definitely in the market for these services. For two years I was a copy editor in Harper & Brothers Publishers' trade book department. The books in this department ranged from the most distinguished belles-lettres to the rough whodonits and how-to's. With this experience and discipline under my belt, I feel I can cope with any kind of manuscript or set of galleys which you may have to offer. The reason I solicit free-lance work is that I have a baby girl who needs me at home. But I have ample time in which to do free-lance work, and I assure you I would be faithful to any deadline you issued. Should you wish to arrange an interview, discuss the stylistic policies of your publishing house, rates, etc., my telephone number is Riverside 9-6932. I hope to hear from you. Sincerely, (Mrs.) Sydell Rosenberg
