CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS! UJA-Federation of New York and READ650 will be holding a local storytelling event on October 18, 2020 featuring short essays on Jewish topics, read aloud by the authors. The pieces can be original, or can be excerpted or adapted from earlier work. Submissions are evaluated by an editorial committee of professional writer/editors, and the live performance will be professionally recorded, archived, and uploaded to the Read650 YouTube channel. The maximum length of 650 words translates to a five-minute spoken word piece. The event theme is Jew-ish: True Tales of Religion and Cultural Identity. Whether you found the afikomen at Passover or your roots in America, whether you were raised Jewish, keep Kosher, or chose Judaism for yourself, share your experience and your story in 650 or fewer words.
