Hineni Literary Magazine

How does Israel shape your Jewish identity?


Submit to the second issue of Hineni, Hopkins Hillel’s new literary magazine for and by the Jewish and Jew-ish community at Hopkins!

This past Hanukkah, to celebrate the diversity of the Jewish community at Hopkins, we released the first issue of Hineni. (Check out this article about us in the Baltimore Jewish Times!)

We asked Jews at Hopkins to explore and express what Judaism means to them spiritually, religiously, and culturally in an essay or poem.

This time, however, we’re looking for something a bit more specific. We want to know how Israel shapes — or doesn’t shape — your Jewish identity.

Have you had meaningful experiences in the land of milk and honey?

Are you passionate or knowledgeable about conflict there? Are you not?

Does Israel strengthen your Jewish identity?

Does Israel complicate your Jewish identity?

We also encourage you to send us visual artwork of your creation that is relevant to Israel and/or your piece.

Please send your submission(s) to hopkinshineni@gmail.com by Monday, March 4, to be considered for publication.

We can’t wait to see what you submit and hope to publish your writing and artwork in our second issue of Hineni!
