Pinking Shears Publications

From Sinai to the Shtetl…. and Letters & Pictures from the Old Suitcase 



These two anthologies are the beginning of an ongoing series edited by Lil Blume and Ellen S. Jaffe and published by our own organization, Pinking Shears Publications. The contributing authors are Jewish writers, mainly from Canada with a few from the U.S., and the stories, poems, and commentaries are ways of reflecting on and defining the Jewish experience of immigration and settling in Canada, based on our personal and family histories. We acknowledge the support of Temple Anshe Sholom and of Allegra Marketing Print Mail through their FootPRINTS fund.  They have helped make these anthologies and the accompanying Jewish Literary Festivals possible.
