'28 Days, 28 Ideas': A Better Future for Jewish Women and Girls

The Sisterhood blog began in 2009 with an idea to create a forum where Jewish women — from across ideological and denominational spectrums, in different cities and stages of life — could come together to discuss the issues impacting their lives. We’re enormously proud of how the conversation has taken shape, and the unlikely common ground that it has unearthed.

The Sisterhood is, therefore, a natural venue for exploring the ideas that have the potential to improve the lives of Jewish women and girls. That is why we have joined forces with six other blogs and organizational partners, which, during the month of February, will be putting forth ideas (of all sorts, not just those that focus on Jewish women) to transform the Jewish future. The project is called “28 Days, 28 Ideas” — and it’s an outgrowth of Jewish blogging pioneer Daniel Sieradski’s recent “31 Days, 31 Ideas.”

Here’s a schedule of where a wide variety of ideas will be published during the next 28 days:

Monday: The Fundermentalist at JTA

Tuesday: Jewcy

Wednesday: eJewishphilanthropy

Thursday: The Sisterhood

Friday: Jewish Federations of North America

Saturday (Motzei Shabbat): 31 Days, 31 Ideas

Sunday: Jewschool

Be sure to check out the first installment of “28 Days, 28 Ideas” here on Monday, February 1, and to become a fan of the project on Facebook.

We also want to hear from you. Share your own ideas for bettering the lives of Jewish women and girls, by emailing us at sisterhood@forward.com.
