I found this delightful notebook while browsing what is new in Jewish and queer books. It showcases important Jewish values and traditions, as well as well-loved phrases and humor. The cover shows the Yiddish phrase “Feygele”  which means “a birdie” in Yiddish. It’s also a word that was once used to call gay men and like the word “queer” has been reclaimed by many. It features unique cover art celebrating LGBTQ Jews and is perfect for journaling, drawing, writing a diary, doodling, making to-do lists, and more.
