Mission Statement

The Jewish Literary Journal aims to publish the best in creative writing that deals with Jewish themes and Jewish identity. Its purpose is to display works that would perhaps go unnoticed otherwise, that can deepen conversation, and continue the tradition of rich Jewish expression.

The Jewish Literary Journal is the only online venue that publishes all genres of Jewish, creative writing on a regular basis. Jewish Literature, Jewish Writing, and Jewish Expression are at the forefront of everything the JLJ does.
