Eliz­a­beth Man­del is the Founder and Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of jGirls+ Mag­a­zine, an online lit­er­ary mag­a­zine for Jew­ish girls and non­bi­na­ry teens. In Salt & Hon­ey: Jew­ish Teens on Fem­i­nism, Cre­ativ­i­ty, and Tradition, a collection col­lec­tion of per­son­al essays, poet­ry, and visu­al art­work, Jew­ish young adults from the online pub­li­ca­tion jGirls Mag­a­zine con­front dif­fi­cult truths in a chang­ing world. Many of the pieces are unfil­tered, seek­ing to con­nect with oth­er teens rather than defend­ing their points of view to adults. The result is a mov­ing work that encour­ages sol­i­dar­i­ty.

We are excited to welcome Elizabeth Mandel virtually to Commonpoint Queens in partnership with the Jewish Book Council. Click here to buy the book.

This event is part of our Cultural Arts Speaker Series. Click here to register. The event will be held virtually and is open to the community.
