AJL: MISSION STATEMENT

 

MISSION STATEMENT

Asian Jewish Life is a celebration of the diversity of the Jewish experience in Asia as well as of Asian Jewry.

We publish a quarterly print magazine that is also available on-line that seeks to:

  • Connect the separate pockets of Jewish Life throughout the region by creating a contemporary creative outlet to share thoughts, ideas and promote unity through memoirs, poetry, short fiction, historical pieces, book and film reviews, viewpoint articles, artist profiles, photography and graphic art.

  • Help preserve the long history that Jewish life has imprinted on the region.

  • Break down common stereotypes about where Jews hail from or what we look like.

  • Build bridges with local communities by sharing our celebration of Jewish life in the region with the aim of leading to a broader understanding of the richness of the Jewish tradition and culture.

  • Help other Jewish non-profit organizations with a regional focus to grow along with us.
