This week on Neshamas, many of our writers fought to break free from the things that are holding them back.
In an inspirational post called You Have Nothing To Lose But Your Chains, a woman who loves learning Torah fights against a system that holds her back because of her gender.
In Untitled, a woman tries to break free of an emotionally abusive relationship.
In a post called Satmar Shidduch Or Dance In The Forest, a woman can’t decide if she should marry a man who doesn’t long to dance free in Israel like she does.
And, in Passover Cleaning With My Parents, a Neshama remembers the feeling of preparing for Pesach with his parents while longing to escape to the library to pursue their interest in philosophy.
