Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Social Activism

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.  

This week, read memoirs from Jewish social activists reflecting on their experiences. How do you effect change? Is there an imperative for justice inherent in Judaism? Does your Jewishness impact your activism? What are Jewish social justice values?

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: spirituality, artists, under 18, Russian and LGBTQ Jewish Life.
