October 16, 2023: Women Advocates are on a Mission in the Fall issue of Inkandescent Women magazine


Monday Morning Magic from Inkandescent® PR + Publishing Co.It has been a joy and honor to feature women advocates in the magazine I’ve published since 2008: InkandescentWomen.com. When I published the Fall 2023 issue on Oct. 1, I had no idea that a war would break out in the Middle East a week later. As a woman proud of my Jewish heritage, it is not the politics of this disaster that I am focused on. It is the devastation of the lives caught in the crossfire.

Early news reports explained: “Israel is reeling from an attack carried about by Hamas that has left more than 900 Israelis dead and more than 100 captured.” In the week since, these events have erupted:

As people around the world struggle to understand the war — and, perhaps as I do, feel helpless in making a difference — I have done the little bit I can to share insights in the Fall issue of the magazine. In the welcome note, I shine our Inkandescent spotlight on Noa Tishby. An Israeli actress, writer, producer, and activist, her production company, Noa’s Arc, produces adaptations of Israeli programs for American networks.

In 2021, Noa published her first book, Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth.

About the book: Israel. The small strip of arid land is 5,700 miles away but remains a hot-button issue and a thorny topic of debate. But while everyone seems to have a strong opinion about Israel, how many people actually know the facts? Here to fill in the information gap is Israeli American Noa Tishby. Offering a fresh, 360-degree view, Tishby brings her straight-shooting, engaging, and slightly irreverent voice to the subject, creating an accessible and dynamic portrait of a tiny country of outsized relevance. Through bite-sized chunks of history and deeply personal stories, Tishby chronicles her homeland’s evolution, beginning in Biblical times and moving forward to cover everything from WWI to Israel’s creation to the real disputes dividing the country today.

Also in the Fall 2023 issue, you’ll find insights from 20 women, including:

Until next Monday: Perhaps having insight and perspective will help us all understand the conflict in the Middle East a bit more. Here’s how to help humanitarian efforts in Israel and Gaza. In peace — Hope Katz Gibbs, founder and president, Inkandescent® Inc. Inkandescent.us
