Her many fans will welcome the publication of Naomi Ragen’s first play, which premiered in July 2002 at Habima National Theater in Tel Aviv. It is based on a true story: a Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) woman, wife of a rabbi, mother of 12, leaves her home and stays with a friend. The community’s “modesty squad” tries in vain to force her to go back. Her …

The history of the labor movement in the U.S. is inextricably linked with this watershed event. It is …

Put a Jewish woman in environmental activism “On the Map!”

Next week is Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish birthday for trees. The meaning of the holiday has undergone some major evolution over the years; it started as a tax deadline, was co-opted by Kabbalists and then the Zionists, and is now considered a holiday celebrating the environment and environmental activism in a broad sense. At the Jewish Women’s Archive, our Tu B’Shevat tradition is to …
