“Rising Voices has taught me an immense amount, not just about feminism and Judaism, but about leadership and what it means to use writing as a tool for change.” – Eliana Gayle-Schneider, 2015-2016 Rising Voices Fellow

Rising Voices

JWA provides a platform to amplify young Jewish women’s voices through the Rising Voices Fellowship, 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.
