Neshamas Try To Find Their Place In The World

This was a week of discovery on Neshamas.  Our writers shared stories of redefining themselves and finding how they fit into the community.

In Making Space, A Neshama describes her journey away from being a “good girl” who excelled at being tznius to a woman who is pushing boundaries and trying out new freedoms.

In Alone Forever, a Neshama tells about how she’s struggled to fit into both the Orthodox and secular communities… but never felt comfortable in either one.

In One Of Whom, A Neshama, inspired by the movie “One Of Us,” talks about how he has always felt rejected by other Jews and wonders what sort of cohesive community the movie was talking about.

Find these stories and many others by our anonymous writers on Neshamas.
