Nishei Ora includes personal and profound art and writing from more than a dozen Jewish women in Florida, Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, New Jersey, New York, Arizona, Los Angeles, Seattle, Hawaii, and Israel. 

Some of us are baalei teshuva — women who grew up secular and returned to Torah Judaism. Some are gerim — Jews by choice. Some are Hassidic, Litvish, Modern Orthodox, Chabad, or new to uncovering the beauty of Judaism.

We span the vast spectrum of observance, and together we have created a beautiful, one-of-a-kind publication with meaningful, thought-provoking and inspiring content. The seven editions of Nishei we have created so far are filled with stories of women working to create within themselves a home for Hashem, bringing holiness into the world.
