In Jewish Color

Jews of color are a growing population in the United States. They’re also a drastically underrepresented one. Even when we do see stories about racially and ethnically diverse Jews in the media, someone else is usually writing them. As a small step toward correcting that representation gap, the Forward has created a series written by and about Jews of color. We invited contributors to tackle any aspect of their identity that feels urgent to them. Here are their responses.— Sigal Samuel
