Featured in Alef: The NEXT Conversation
As we started putting together Alef’s 13th issue, we realized that thirteen often gets a bad rap. Defined, simply, as “a cardinal number; 10 plus 3,” this numeric landmark is undeniably significant. But why? How did “13″ ever come to be associated with the negativity we so often ascribe to it?...
Check out Birthright Israel NEXT’s Alef: The NEXT Conversation. It is a webzine that explores Jewish identity. From memoirs on “Why I Eat What I Eat” to a soul-searching narrative on serving jury duty during the High Holidays, Alef showcases the diversity of Jewish identity through stories, pictures, poems, music and more.
