Clare Kinberg

Clare Kinberg’s editing of the Jewish feminist journal Bridges put authors from across the spectrum of the Jewish, feminist, and activist communities in conversation with each other. Kinberg founded Bridges in 1989 with several other members of the New Jewish Agenda, aiming to turn the group’s newsletter into a journal as a way to support coalition efforts between different progressive groups. As managing editor, Kinberg selected essays that seemed to speak to each other or offer contrasting views of the same issues, covering topics from health care to LGBT rights to the experiences of Jewish women of color. The journal published its final issue in 2011, with essays by scholar Susannah Heschel and poet Alicia Ostriker, among others. Kinberg has also served as a founding member of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom: Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace and has written several articles on organizing for Israeli/Palestinian peace and Jewish feminism.
