Neshama: The Jewess Soul (Director, Developer & Editor)

Neshama: The Jewess Soul is a web-based, interactive diary and living archive that offers a deeply intimate and reflective space for Jewish womyn across different racial, ethnic, mixed heritage, and Judaic backgrounds to share their unique and eclectic stories, journeys, and perspectives on the ancient question of “What does it mean to be a Jewish womyn?” The participants of this project are given space to represent themselves and create the self-image they believe to be most true about their Jewess body and soul, resisting the images given to them by oppressive social structures of sexism, racism and anti-semitism in the United States. This project asks of each participant to take part in a meaningful journey towards self and collective healing and liberation alongside myself and other Jewish womyn through sharing their stories and voices in the creative medium(s) of their choice.

This project is a work in progress and will continue to be a living, breathing archive to be added onto for years to come.
