Back in May, I was part of a Jewish Women’s Archive project which involved tweeting articles from Jewish Women: A Comprehensive Historical Encyclopedia to mark Jewish American Heritage Month. This week, September 19 to 25, is round 2 of that project, in observance of Rosh Hashanah. I’ll be tweeting an entry a day (@chaneldubofsky) from the Encyclopedia-I started today with anarchist Lucy Fox Robins Lang-with the intention of addressing each of these three questions:
1. Who do you choose to inspire and guide you through the New Year?
2. Who do you choose to inspire and guide your community through the New Year?
3. Who do you choose to inspire and guide the world through the New Year?
The goal of the project is to acquaint folks of the roles of Jewish women in American history, to generate conversation about gender and Judaism, and to contemplate these lives and works as we move into the New Year.
You can participate in the #jwapedia campaign by tweeting a link to the Encyclopedia using the hashtag #jwapedia, and follow the campaign at Twitter starting today, September 19th , by searching for #jwapedia or following JWA at @jwaonline.
