This beautiful design was created for JFREJ by the Jewish illustrator Sarah Day

The term Diasporist, as in someone who practices Diasporism, is an idea that comes originally from the Jewish Social Labor Bund's principle of doikayt, or "here-ness" during the turn of the 20th Century. Doikayt means that wherever we live is our homeland. 

JFREJ's founding Executive Director, the lesbian feminist poet and activist Melanie Kaye/Kantrowitz, built on the idea of doikayt in her work, coining the term Radical Diasporism, which became one of JFREJ's core organizing principles. As she wrote: "Diasporism embraces diaspora, offers a place where we might join with others who value this history of dispersion; others who stand in opposition to nationalism and the nation state...Diasporism depends not on dominance but on balance, perpetual back and forth, home and away, community and outside."
