Rising Voices

The Jewish Women's Archive provides a platform for young Jewish women and non-binary teens* to amplify their voices through the Rising Voices Fellowship, a leadership development program for teens who have a passion for writing, and a strong interest in feminism and Judaism—particularly as they relate to social justice.

*JWA embraces expansive understandings of what it means to be Jewish and a woman. Learn more on our "About" and "FAQ" pages.
