March Book Display: The myriad of the Jewish experience

What does it mean to be Jewish? How can we consider the intersectionality of identity when we think about Judaism and the Jewish people? The Library's March book display explores the intersections of identity from Jews all over the world, especially Jews on the margins – whether they are queer, trans, Black, Latinx, Sephardi, or Mizrachi and more. As there is no one way to look Jewish, there is also no one way to be Jewish, no matter who you are or where you are from. Through looking at nonfiction and fiction, history and scholarship, YA and beyond, this display looks at Jews in all of their iterations.  Browse the display on Farber Level 1, around the corner from Starbucks.

This display was created in coordination with the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for the DEIS Impact event Embracing Difference: Recognizing Jewish Identity at the Margins in the Effort to Address Racism and Antisemitism, will will be held on March 25-27, 2024.
