Scope and Contents

Series 4: Outreach includes community outreach programs, materials and speeches from conferences, reader surveys, the Talent Bank files, and records of activities performed in conjunction with other organizations. Materials are arranged chronologically within each folder. For more information about each sub-series please consult the sub-series descriptions in the box and folder listing.

Lilith’s mission includes being “the feminist change-agent in and for the Jewish community,” and this purpose has informed their outreach efforts and community engagement. The outreach files document Lilith’s work with other Jewish organizations, attendance and presentations at conferences, and engagement with readers as they raise consciousness about Jewish women’s issues and accomplishments. These files notably include over 200 submitted answers to Lilith’s reader survey, conducted in the Winter 1999-2000 issue. These surveys offer valuable insight into Lilith’s readership and the daily lives of Jewish women across ages, classes, and professions. The surveys are further informed by other demographic research included in the series, with substantial reference material on teen girls’ organizations.
