Even Prominent In Their Circlesprominent in their circles the coming generations In the early edition I read many of the contributors were Holocaust survivors or people whose families had immigrated in the years immediately preceding there are also some contributors from Arab countries whose families fled in the wake of anti Jewish measures their states enacted in the wake of Israel s founding In addition there are a couple contributions from black Jewish women Because the volume I read was from the 1970s its politics concerning Israel have a markedly different tone which is seful for me for context It s an incredible book that tries to do a lot of things with itself It doesn t cover all ground and many of its contributors have been the subject of heated debate and scrutiny many for good reason but it was when it was written and is eually vital now a classic must read for Jewish Lesbians and the people that love them read for Jewish Lesbians and the people that love them really really loved this book I loved the sense of being deep into an anthology that was so catered to my experiences in the world as a Jewish lesbian to experiences like mine There were many themes in here I had felt for years but somehow had never consciously realized that of course other Jewish dykes exist And may feel the same way Things like How as a 3rd generation descendent of still livi Nice Jewish Girls is such an important read It s an anthology on various Jewish related subjects by Jewish lesbians containing essays poems stories and While this book was at times hard to read I am really happy that I didI loved the variety of media involved in this anthology Instead of it simply being a bunch of essays there were several poems a couple stories and even a recorded conversation and some excerpts from letters Also the essays weren t written in super academic language so they were not difficult to comprehend While some of the passages were pretty sad to be expected it s about being.

Though dated I absolutely loved this anthology I loved reading about the history of my community and being able to relate to so much of it A worthwhile read One of the best books I have ever read If you want to learn about the History of intersectionality I highly suggest this book It offers a wide variety of stories and personal anecdotes on the history of intersectionality before intersectionality was even a term pleased to announce that a good like nine months after i 1 found this at the hyde park sed book sale but didn t buy it because i was just briefly stopping by not making my Big Haul Purchase 2 made
