    Hadassah & jGirls Magazine Essay Contest

    Friday, November 5, 2021 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM

    Young Jews are being confronted by antisemitism in ways not seen for generations – in school, on social media, in their communities. We want to hear about those experiences. To that end, Hadassah Magazine and jGirls Magazine, an online publication by and for Jewish teenage girls and young women, are pleased to announce their second annual teen essay contest that asks:

    Tell us about a time in your life when antisemitism affected you and how you responded.

    We are interested in personal narratives about your own experience and/or feelings, in your unique voice.
