Young Jewish and Left
Young Jewish and Left

A celebration of diversity, Young Jewish and Left weaves queer culture, Jewish Arab history, secular Yiddishkeit, anti-racist analysis, and religious/spiritual traditions into a multi-layered tapestry of Leftist politics. Personal experiences from many of today’s leading Jewish activists reframe the possibilities of Jewish identity.

It presents a fresh and constructive take on race, spirituality, Zionism, queerness, resistance, justice, and liberation. Young Jewish and Left was shot throughout the US and focuses on Jews who came of age after the New Left movements of the 60s and 70s. Activists from the previous generation provide historical context. Music by Mirah, Nomy Lamm, and the Divahn.
