What’s Behind Jewish Beauty?

Last month, our staff discussed potential topics surrounding Jewish women and beauty, and everyone yelled out possibilities: “Nose jobs!” “Botox!” “Moms who overfeed!” But these were topics that many of us had already heard plenty about, so we dug deeper. We began wondering whether Jewish beauty has changed over time, whether it’s different in Israel than in America, why it sometimes feels like it’s the main focus at synagogue, and what to do when people claim “you don’t look Jewish.”
Enjoy the issue, and help us celebrate 614’s one-year anniversary by filling out a quick survey to make our ezine even better.
