Uplifting Asian Jewish Voices
At Be’chol Lashon, we celebrate the stories and contributions of Asian Jews. The past year has seen a rise in discrimination and violence against Asian Americans, who have been wrongly scapegoated for the coronavirus pandemic. We hold our Asian Jewish family during this painful time. We see you, we hear you, and we support you. You are a valuable part of the global Jewish community.
Below we highlight articles by and about Asian Jews that have appeared in our publication, Jewish&. We also invite you to watch a new short-form video series, LUNAR: The Jewish-Asian Film Project, about young adults who exist at the intersection of Jewish and Asian American.
By and for Asian Jews, The LUNAR Collective cultivates connection, belonging and visibility for Asian American Jews through intersectional community programming and authentic digital storytelling.
