Rebecca (she/her) is an artist and educator from Brooklyn, NY. She’s spent the past decade working in the Jewish social justice movement to engage local and national communities in volunteering, organizing, and advocacy. Rebecca operates from a foundational belief that everyone is creative. She’s trained as a creative facilitator with the Jewish Studio Project and works with the the Jewish community to create spaces where people can access their creativity and explore their connection to community, identity, and place. With artist Rachel Schragis, Rebecca cofacilitated JFREJ’s Unraveling Antisemitism. This poster and discussion guide earned acclaim as a cultural organizing project and map of the struggle to win a world free from antisemitism. Currently, Rebecca works on staff at Lilith magazine, organizing Jewish feminist events and partnerships.
Her commitment to stripping down barriers to creativity and unlearning oppressive frameworks is mirrored in her own artistic practice. Through the process of making comics and collage, Rebecca observes and deconstructs her own anxieties, joys, and fears as a white, Jewish woman—and how they are shaped by her family history, culture, and institutions. You can find her cartoons and illustrations published in Lilith magazine and in “Jewish Women in Comics: Bodies and Borders,” edited by Heike Bauer, Andrea Greenbaum, Sarah Lightman.
