The Layers Project Magazine is an online media source for in-depth insights into the lives of Jewish women. First came the successful photojournalism blog, The Layers Project, which features the stories of Jewish women in their own words. Now, as a response to reader interest, we are launching a magazine to cater to the cultural, emotional and spiritual needs of Jewish women. We seek to combat the removal of images of women from Jewish media and hope to continue sharing in the challenges and triumphs of being a Jewish woman.
The Layers Project is a community of readers dedicated to shattering stigmas and building bridges of support across differences. In the year since I began this project, only once or twice have I had to moderate the group for harmful or disrespectful comments — a phenomenon almost unheard of in our day and age.
On the hundreds of posts that poured in, the comments were only empathetic, insightful and gracious.
The women who stand up to tell their stories — and the readers who reach back out with their support — have created a community of healing, resilience and compassion. I am humbled to be included in this brave cohort of women.”
