Neshamas Crave Community

This week on Neshamas, our writers talked about their efforts to reach out to friends and community… efforts which were not always successful.

In Reclaiming My Community, a Neshama tells about how, after she was sexually abused, she no longer felt comfortable attending Jewish community events because she knew that her abuser would be there.

In I Whisper In Your Ear a Neshama reaches out to members of the community who may feel different or alone and reassures them of their beauty and worth.

And, in Detachment, a writer worries that the value people place on material things takes away from real human connection.

Find these and other stories by our anonymous writers on Neshamas.
