2020 Hindsight: A pivotal moment in history, through the eyes of Atlanta’s Jewish women and girls is the first publication of its kind to capture the experiences of Jewish women and girls during this historic moment in time. This poignant collection of stories and poetry exudes a profound sense of personal discovery, depth and hope, recalling candid reflections of the struggles endured by women and girls in Atlanta’s Jewish community during a most challenging year. Writers ranging in age from 7-90, pulled back the curtain on their innermost thoughts to illuminate what’s really going on in their lives and offer powerful and provocative testimony.
Founded in 2012, Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta promotes social change and expands positive opportunities for Jewish women. In the past 9 years, the organization has invested $1.6 million in 53 partner organizations that impactfully champion gender equality, leadership development, violence prevention, economic empowerment, and education. No other organization is as exclusively and passionately dedicated to the advancement of Jewish women and girls in Atlanta and around the world.
