Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish College Life

Shane Hankins

By Sasha Gayle-Schneider

If you had exactly six words to describe your life, what would they be? As a continuation of the book Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life published by SMITH Magazine, the online storytelling community founded in 2006, Reboot will highlight Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish life from some of the many diverse communities grappling with Judaism, meaning and identity.

What does Judaism mean to you? What is Jewish and Jewishness? What communities are most defining of your identity? This week, read memoirs from college students who took a moment to reflect on their experiences and what Judaism means to them.

To participate in the project, please email your Six-Word Memoir to Sasha@rebooters.net or visit the Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life website. 

Categories for upcoming weeks include activism, spirituality, artists, LGBTQ and Russian Jewish life.
