Beyond Forgiveness

by Rabbi Susan Schnur

Can we free ourselves from a model meant for men? During the penitential High Holiday season, can we learn how to get beyond the binary, male construct of "forgiving" vs "not forgiving"? Lilith’s Editor at Large teaches us that shleymut (a spiritual and emotional wholeness), not simpleminded forgiveness, will emancipate us from our hurts. Plus—a new book and two remarkable films to illuminate our thinking.

Jewish Woman’s Eggs

by Susan Weidman Schneider

Ads in college papers invite Jewish women to become egg donors—for compensation up to $50,000! Turns out that infertile Jewish women are looking for eggs from younger versions of themselves. Lilith’s Editor in Chief explores the assumptions behind the ads, the risks to young women and the complex emotions generated by new reproductive possibilities. Plus Eleanor J. Bader on buying and selling: the metaphors of assisted reproduction.
