"Because of the Rising Voices Fellowship, I now know that what I say, write, and believe is significant. I can put up a piece of writing on the blog, and people I have never met will see it, think about it, and hopefully take something away. If this is what power feels like, then I can understand why everyone wants it.” - Ellie Kahn, 2014-2015 Rising Voices Fellow

Rising Voices

The Rising Voices Fellowship is a leadership development program for female-identified teens who have a passion for writing, and a strong interest in feminism and Judaism—particularly as they relate to social justice.

The Rising Voices Fellowship is funded in part by a grant from the Hadassah Foundation.
