Amy F. J. Stone

Amy F. J. Stone is a founder of Lilith, the “frankly feminist” Jewish women’s magazine. Her investigative reporting for Lilith in the 1970s examined the United Jewish Appeal’s policy of excluding women from its Young Leadership Cabinet and the Jewish Theological Seminary’s men’s club justifications for refusing to ordain women as rabbis. Both institutions have since changed their policies. Inside the Jewish establishment, she has been director of the UJA media center, director of communications for American Associates of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and director of marketing for Women’s American ORT. She has been associate producer with ABC News “20/20,” a writer on Maryland Public Broadcasting’s “Wall Street Week” and a reporter with the Bangkok Post. She is currently a freelance writer and editor.
