Purchase your very own Radical Jewish Calendar at BuyOlympia.com! Printed in the Pacific Northwest by union-labor.
13 months (it’s a Jewish leap year!) of political art, culture, and history made by dreamers, artists, and organizers who want to know what time it is.
This project was dreamed up by some Jews who were tired of using calendars with advertisements for cemeteries as their only reference for Jewish holy days. This is a collaborative effort between friends and many contributors.
Proceeds go to artists and design contributors, which include farmers, rabbis, candle makers, facilitators, radio hosts, bodyworkers, rock stars, carpenters, Kohenet priestesses, organizers, and more.
This calendar is a celebration of Jewish culture that is intersectional, queer, feminist, anti-racist, and that challenges and builds a Judaism and Jewishness beyond Zionism. Because you’ve always wanted to find out when Ta’anit Esther and the anniversary of the BDS Call are, all in the same place.
Content Editor, Jessica Rosenberg, makes meeting agendas, tuna noodle casseroles, and, now, calendars. She enjoys getting up with the sun, organizing for the just redistribution of resources, and propagating wandering Jews of all kinds.
Art Editor, Elissa Martel has been a weird art kid since childhood, and peaked in 4th grade when she sang with Celine Dion. Most recent peak has been working on this amazing calendar with a team of babes, obvi.
Layout Editor, Ariana Katz learned how to do layout from being a nerdy high schooler hiding in the newspaper office and making zines. She likes ritual, intergenerational revolutionary learning, remembering birthdays, and parshat hashavuah.
