The “I” Word: Intersectionality and the Jewish Community

The “I” Word: Intersectionality and the Jewish Community

Originally meant as an inclusive tool to defend marginalized communities, the term “intersectionality” has become a hot button in Jewish communal spaces. From the Women’s March to college campuses, debates around anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism continue to flare in intersectional forums. As diverse communities join together to address a range of social justice causes, is there room for the Jewish community?
