It is the activities fostered by Lilith beyond the covers of the magazine that are most distinctive. Its editor-in-chief is, for example, regularly invited to speak at the General Assembly of the Council of United Jewish Communities, Jewish community centers, conferences and other venues. Lilith has also developed a talent bank of more than four hundred Jewish women who can serve as resources in many fields. In 2002 Lilith created a traveling exhibition of ten large wall panels that explore, through excerpts from the magazine's articles and illustrations, the most urgent issues in the lives of Jewish women since the magazine's inception in 1976. The exhibition, traveling across North America, and the creation of a website ( with a searchable database of the Table of Contents of all back issues, have brought Lilith's subject matter to new audiences. The partnership between the magazine and activists strengthens Lilith's impact on the community.
