Letter from the Editor – Spring 2019

When I became Leviathan’s Editor in Chief, I thought it was the last thing I was prepared for. I have too much on my plate, I thought. And besides, I don’t know enough about politics or social issues or anything like that!

While I did have a lot of responsibilities, and while I still don’t consider myself the most politically savvy, what I did find out while at Leviathan is that nothing is impossible with support and a community. That’s exactly what the staff members of Leviathan strive to provide each other, and the community – including our readership of peers, faculty, family, and more. And though we sometimes struggled this year, it was with the support of not only each other, but our advisors and friends, that we managed to put together a beautiful issue that we are all proud of. Because of that, I want to thank my amazing staff members, and our readers, from the bottom of my heart.

I feel that I’m walking in the footsteps of other great Jews as Leviathan publishes the Spring 2019 issue, our 46th year – the people who have led Leviathan for that much time, as well as the people who have led magazines for countless other Jewish communities throughout the world. I can’t wait to see what we do next!

L’chaim,

Amanda Leiserowitz
