We're looking to collect, hear, and share all kinds of stories about Jewish identity in anticipation of Eser's The Nosh event (January 29th, 6:30 - 9 p.m., at Mamaleh's ). Tell your story about your Jewish identity -- whatever that means to you -- in the form below.
Are you Jewish? Jew-ish? Jew adjacent? A Jew by choice? Or thinking about converting? Are you in an interfaith relationship? Single? Happily married? Happily divorced? A new parent? A graduate student? A recent graduate? No matter where you are on your Jewish journey…. whether you were raised Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist, Modern Orthodox, Orthodox, or nondenominational; whether you’re a Jew of color, active in the LGBTQ community; Mizrahi, Sephardic, Ashkenazi, and/or Israeli; whether you attended Jewish Day School, Hebrew School, participated in Hillel, did Eser, or none of the above; whether you’re a born-and-bred Cantabrigian or a newly-minted Bostonian…. we want to hear your story!
Tell us your unique Jewish story: what does your Jewish identity mean to you?What does it mean to be a Jewish millennial? Can you share a moment or an experience that stands out to you in the formation of your Jewish identity? What does your Jewish identity look, feel, smell, taste, sound like? When did you feel really "Jewish"? What does being Jewish even mean?
We will be selecting ten of our favorite submissions to be shared live at The Nosh. Want to share your story at the event? Please let us know on the form below. Don't want anyone to know? These submissions will remain anonymous if you so indicate below. Each story performance is limited to 5 minutes, so please keep that in mind as you share your story. You will be notified a week in advance of the event if your story is selected. If it's not, there will be plenty of other ways to share your story at the event, so we hope to see you there!
