By NYU-Hunter Students; Penina Shtauber (Editor), Uriel Dison (Editor), Mitchell LaDue (Editor)

The Jewish experience is unique to every individual but it also unites us as one tribe. In this anthology, My Jew-ish Story, a group of NYU and Hunter College students share insight into their Jewish experience as they live their own Jewish life.

What a perfect way to pass an afternoon. Each story in this collection is emotional and powerful, as distictive as the students who wrote them. I found myself inspired by their bravery in sharing such a deeply personal part of themselves.

I’d like to thank editor, Penina Shtauber, for the free copy of this anthology in exchange for my honest review.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

From the Back Cover

Judaism permeates lives in various ways, and yet, it connects us all the same. This is a collection of reflections on life, upon which our Jew-ish experiences have had some kind of impact, big or small, direct or tangential. Through gathering and sharing our stories, we hope to give you a glimpse into Jewish life through the eyes of college students living, learning, and being Jewish in 2021. A collection of short stories and poems by NYU and Hunter College students sharing their Jewish experience.
