New York Magazine’s first Jew-centric cover story of the year has been written by a Jewish woman named Jessica Friedman.
The article, “Jewish Women: Women Who Are Doing What’s Important,” details the experiences of Jewish women who are doing what’s important.
Friedman has written about the lives of many of these women and their experiences of privilege in the United States and Israel, including how they’re able to overcome the obstacles that they faced and are living their lives to the fullest.
But there are many other women who also face the same struggles and are similarly inspired by the same themes of empowerment, love and acceptance.
They include women who don’t have the same financial means as Friedman but who are making sacrifices for others, women who want to make their voices heard, and women who have lost loved ones.
And while Friedman is a woman who has done her best to write about these issues, there is much more to the story than the title implies.
Friedman was born in New York City and grew up in Brooklyn, where her parents raised her.
She is the daughter of Jewish immigrants from Russia and Poland, who fled the Nazi regime in Europe during the Holocaust.
When she was in college, she was an international correspondent for The New York Times and wrote about Jewish issues in the U.S. and abroad.
Friedman went on to graduate from New York University and eventually became the managing editor of The New Republic, a publication founded by the late Howard Zinn.
She has also written for The Nation, The New Inquiry and Slate.
Friedman’s story is part of an ongoing initiative to publish stories by women of color and other underrepresented groups that address issues of power and privilege.
The New Yorkers who will be featured in Friedman’s article include Mimi Akyol, a former reporter and editor for The Intercept; Misha Cohen, a writer, director and producer; and Amira Hass, a journalist and filmmaker.
Friedman also includes stories from people like Jodi Rudoren, a Brooklyn woman who, as a writer and a producer, has also been a voice for people of color.
A recent article about Jewish women’s experiences with sexual assault in the military also appears in the issue.
