By opening this thread, we, the Jewish authors, have decided to turn to Episode team and ask - give us what we want!
Why is our ethnic identity not equal to others? Yes - Judaism isn’t only religion, but also an ethnicity!! So, why don’t we deserve to have our shelf? A Jewish shelf?
Read these banners below (technically, it is one banner, but almost each one is a continuation) . This banner isn’t only our request, but also tells what we feel. We request from Episode team to give us what we want, because we want to represent Judaism in our stories. Again, Judaism is not only our religion, but also our ethnic identity. We want to show the beauty of our Jewish culture, religion and ethnic identity! To raise awareness for our Judaism!
Here what we have to say:
Please, Episodians, we call on you - help us get what we ask, want and need. Help us spread our message. Please help us get the representation we deserve. As the banner said, every person in his own right deserves to be represented
Please share this post. Any help and support of yours will mean to us a lot
The banners were made by the amazing and talented @TalGordin. If you want to see more about the protest, check out on instagram - you can find it in @TalGordin’s user (talgordin.writes).
Note: By creating this thread, we are fighting for representation, for a change - not to be attacked by anyone. So, please do not come and spread hatred against us. If you have any problems with this, be polite and respectful.
Create feature requests for the items that accurately portray and represent this accordingly and it will be escalated directly to Episode. Thanks.
I’d like to thank in advance every person who supports us as we try to raise awareness for our culture. This means so much!
And I’d like to take the opportunity to also thank everyone on Instagram who’s been supporting, commenting, sharing and reposting. This honestly means the world!
Ahem - actually, items were requested. Here, see it:
CLOTHING: Kippahs and Tichel!
ACCESSORIES: Jewerly With Religions’ Symbols!
CLOTHING: Limelight Yarmulke
There are more.
In addition, @Mehasels and I expressed our feeling about people here not representing us:
Jewish people representation in Episode
I reposted her original post and added my opinion (feelings)
Not trying to be rude or attack you.
Never insinuated you didn’t. Just giving you more reason to include the links that you just did above so you can get more support
Well, too sad that some people here don’t even care about us, and that’s why we decided to open this topic. We asked what we did, because we want to represent ourselves, and so others can represent us.
Neglecting to incorporate certain assets isn’t a direct attack against anyone. Everything in life gets prioritized. You creating this thread, keeping it on topic and providing details is a great way of bringing this to Episodes attention. Sometimes all it takes is a well behaved and organized push to get the ball rolling. Good job!
I"m confused you guys want to be on the shelf, right, I’m slow
It would be even better if Kippahs and Tichels were released with the shelf
We want to be on May’s Heritage shelf and get kippahs and headscarves for Limelight so that we can create characters that represent our culture!
Please support us so that our culture gets recognized and represented on the app!
The sad thing is that the Jewish ethnicity could 100% be represented in Asian Heritage Month. Israel is in Asia! But they don’t go any further West than China so…
It is true, but not all the Jews live in Israel
