Community description:Judaism and fandom: two great tastes that taste great together.

This community is a space for fannish Jews and Jewish fans to discuss the intersection of Judaism and fandom in our lives. For now, we're limiting membership in the community to people who fit that description. (If you self-define as a fannish Jew or Jewish fan, you're welcome here. We're not interested in policing the boundaries of either Jewishness or fannishness.)

This should go without saying, but we'll say it anyway: no attacks on anyone else's form(s) of Jewishness or fannishness will be tolerated. There are as many ways to be Jewish and fannish as there are Jews and fans. We're hoping that this comm will attract Jews of every variety and fans of every stripe, and we want to make this a safe place for all of us.

"Safe" doesn't necessarily mean that your views or ideas won't be challenged. We hope that they will! We look forward to all sorts of discussion, and we assume that our conversations here will feature a variety of voices and perspectives. That's not a bug, it's a feature.

Our ground rules are pretty simple. Try to be a mensch. No ad hominem attacks. No antisemitism. Steer clear of racism, homophobia, sexism, ableism, and so on. And try not to leap immediately to defensiveness if other members of the comm perceive any of those things where you do not.

As noted above, at this point in time, the comm is open only to Jews. Membership is moderated, which means you need to apply to join; once you join, you'll be able to read posts, make posts, and comment on posts. We're going to start off with posts locked to community members, which means that if you're not part of the community, you won't see the posts. We may change that at some future date, or we may not; we'll see how things go!

In general both moderators tend to operate on the theory that we're all capable of having rational adult discussions, but we reserve the right to deny membership to anyone who we know has acted inappropriately in other similar communities, and we reserve the right to boot anyone who acts inappropriately here. We hope we won't have to do that, though.
