Young Jewish women engage in almost every aspect of religious and cultural Jewish life, yet their unique perspectives have remained largely invisible. Through poetry and personal essays, Joining the Sisterhood sheds light on the lives of these young women as they search for both personal and universal truths. By writing about their thoughts and experiences, the women in this anthology join the sisterhood of women who work toward justice in their homes, synagogues, and communities.
