Habitus, A Diaspora Journal is part of a new breed of Jewish magazines being created by young Jews and defining Judaism and their involvement on their own terms. With funding from the Dorot Foundation and focusing on Diaspora literature and culture the editors tell us “Habitus is not simply a magazine about Jews–it is a Jewish magazine about the world.
Habitus takes its shape from the elusive concept known as the Diaspora – that untidy mix of longing and belonging, past and place.”
With the first two issues focusing on European cities, first Budapest and now Sarajevo, the magazine speaks to contemporary readers “who wrestle with what it means to be truly at home.”
