Too Smart, Too Loud, Too JAPpy: Moving Beyond Stereotypes will be an evening of readings of and by Lilith Magazine authors including Cynthia Ozick, Erica Jong, Grace Paley, Myla Goldberg, Eve Ensler, Marge Piercey, Alicia Ostricker, Nessa Rappaport, and Esther Broner.

Too Smart, Too Loud, Too JAPpy: Moving Beyond Stereotypes is presented in conjunction with LILITH Magazine: The Voice of Jewish Women, an exhibition celebrating more than 25 years of the award-winning independent Jewish women’s magazine, on view at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Museum from through June 27, 2003. The exhibition, which documents the impact of feminist Jewish journalism during the pivotal years 1976-2001, includes fine art illustrations for the magazine, original manuscripts, iconic photographs, and memorabilia supporting Jewish women’s roles in the world. It addresses diverse topics such as women rabbis and cantors, women and Jewish ritual, Jewish community, public celebrations, scholarship, health and healing, images of Jewish women, “unheard” women of the Diaspora, intimate relationships, and body image.

LILITH, the award-winning, nonprofit, independent national Jewish women’s magazine has been the voice of feminism for Jews since 1976. Jewish women and girls see new roles for themselves in its investigative reports, edgy scholarship, memoirs, news briefs, original fiction and poetry, reviews and resource listings, and a very lively take on traditions, celebrations, and social change.
