For this week’s update I’d like to talk about my personal identity:
Dylan Motto

Hi Dylan! I like how you are thinking about multiple parts of your identity in the context of your digital media project. You’ve highlighted three key parts of your identity: gender, religion, and socioeconomic class. I think you can strengthen you post by giving more detail or anecdotes about how each of these parts of your identity play out. Was there a specific time when your socioeconomic status prevented you from practicing Judaism? Or was there a specific time when you felt like you had to act a certain way to fulfill a societal expectation of being a man? I also wonder how each piece of your identity affects your religious identity. How does being a man shape your experience of Judaism? What are Jewish expectations of gender roles?
