My first week of guest-blogging has come to a close, and what a week it was!
Between writing posts and reading comments, I think I’ve nearly exhausted my current reserves for Judaism blogging, so I’m going to switch over to gender blogging for a little awhile (though my next post will likely be about both).
Thank you to everyone who participated in the fascinating conversations we’ve had this week. I learned so much from all of you and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to come together like we did. I am furious at how much pain so many of us are carrying around — the pain of exclusion from our own communities — but I am awed by the passion, kindness, and commitment to justice that have been demonstrated here. I hope you all will wander over to my blog once in awhile to continue the discussion, and I hope that some of you will pick up this thread at your own blogs, starting new conversations that appeal to you. (If you want to start a conversation but don’t have your own blog, I’d be happy to publish your post at Dear Diaspora anytime.) If and when you start a discussion at your place, please let me know! You can reach me by email at s.lisa.bond [at] gmail.com or leave me a comment at DD. I’m going to set up a static page to tie things together in the next few days, and I want to include any and all future posts and conversations in this vein there (I consider “this vein” to be the future of progressive Diaspora Judaism, but I’m open to expanding or changing that as is fitting).
