Mission

SHARE. INSPIRE. UNITE.

Our mission is to encourage Jewish women and teens of all backgrounds to express themselves through writing and art, as well as to unite, educate and inspire communities.

Published in the merit of our matriarchs, Sarah, Rivka, Rachel and Leah, as well as the holy rebbetzins whose dedication continues to inspire us, including Batsheva Kanievsky, Sara Kramer, Sarah Schenirer, Chaya Mushka Schneerson and Rashi Minkowicz obm. May we all strive to grow and inspire, to educate and unite. 

OUR NAME

Nishei began in 2014 in Atlanta’s Jewish community. As we expanded beyond Atlanta into Richmond, then Jacksonville and other southern communities, we considered changing the name of the publication for those who didn’t know the meaning of the word Nishei.

However, after conducting surveys at various women’s events, we decided to retain the original name with an added tagline: Nishei – Jewish Women’s Magazine.

Women explained that even if they didn’t fully understand the term’s meaning, they knew Nishei was a magazine filled with interesting and inspiring content.

Hebrew for “women of,” Nishei gives us the opportunity come together as “women of” whichever community we call home — united as one.

Nishei – Women of Wisdom. Women of Transcendence. Women of Elegance.
