Publisher’s Message: Spring, a season of hope

Although the hotter temperatures are just around the corner, we are truly enjoying these cool days as spring begins on March 20. Then, a week later, we will be celebrating the first night of Passover on March 27. It is difficult not to draw some symbolism from these two dates. Spring is associated with new life, and Passover commemorates the Biblical story of Exodus – where G-d freed the Israelites from slavery in Egypt.

As more and more people are getting vaccinated, a sense of new life and new beginnings is taking hold. And few will take for granted the freedoms we had pre-pandemic. Let’s hope the progress continues.

April brings a time of reflection during Genocide Awareness Month as we honor and remember the victims and survivors of genocides, including the Holocaust on Yom HaShoah. We also take time to honor the fallen soldiers and victims of terror on Yom Hazikaron. Then our sorrow turns to joy on Yom Ha’atzmaut as we celebrate the 73rd anniversary of Israel’s independence.

We celebrate Women’s History Month in March, with the theme for 2021 being “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced.” We are thrilled to be featuring one of the most valiant Jewish women we know on our March/April cover. Gugulethu “Gugu” Moyo refused to be silent through genocide, imprisonment and suppression to build a thriving life and career and help so many along the way. Gugu – you are a wonder.

Gugu is the first Jew of color to lead a major Jewish museum in the United States. She is the executive director of the Jewish History Museum and Holocaust History Center in Tucson, AZ.  And speaking of Tucson, we were saddened by the recent closure of the Arizona Jewish Post after 75 years. We have always admired Phyllis Braun’s work, who was AJP’s editor for almost 25 years.

As an independent Jewish lifestyle magazine and content creator, we may look different than Jewish community newspapers, but we share the same goal of bringing awareness and sharing stories about all the remarkable people that make our community so vital. We will be working hard on expanding our coverage in the Tucson area to make sure that this vibrant Jewish community still has a voice.

May this new season bring you renewal and hope,

Cindy Saltzman, Publisher Arizona Jewish Life magazine
