New York, NY – Lilith Magazine was named today as one of 19 leading Jewish organizations committed to having the greatest impact on the lives of women and girls. Lilith is described as “Shaping the gender justice discourse of the Jewish community with fearless journalism and face-to-face salons.” Lilith appears in one of three supplements to the Slingshot Guide accompanying the tenth annual Slingshot Guide, Slingshot 2014-15. Being honored in this supplement, published for a second year, along with two regionally-focused ones, will help further expand Lilith’s reach and our ability to carry out our mission, as well as to draw in activists and donors looking for new opportunities and projects that, through their innovative nature, will ensure the Jewish community remains relevant and thriving with input from women and girls in very arena.
Selected from among hundreds of finalists reviewed by 112 professionals with expertise in grantmaking and Jewish communal life, Lilith is hailed in the Guide as “a leader in in-depth feminist journalism.”
Organizations included in this year’s women and girls supplement were evaluated on their innovative approach, the impact they have in their work, the leadership they have in their sector, and their effectiveness at achieving results. ”Lilith Magazine is proud to be among the 21 organizations included in the second year of this supplement,” said Susan Weidman Schneider. “The organizations included in Slingshot’s women and girls supplement demonstrate the potential impact on and by women and girls in Jewish life today. Lilith Magazine is thankful that Slingshot continues to highlight women and girls as it expands the scope of its Guide, and we are honored to be part of the community of innovative organizations that have benefited from the Slingshot Guide over the last ten years.” The supplement was supported through a generous partnership with the Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York.
