Looking at their hopes and dreams, their challenges and struggles, their newly discovered opportunities along well-trodden paths to growth and fulfillment, responses to old challenges and new pitfalls -- in stirring prose, and soaring poetry, thoughtful essays and provocative discussions, bittersweet memories and beckoning aspirations. A veritable kaleidoscope of what it means to function as a Torah-guided woman in contemporary society, as a contemporary person in Torah society.
In this anthology, the Jewish woman defines herself -- in her own voice as well as through the voices of outstanding rabbis and writers who have distinguished themselves with their challenging yet reassuring insights and words of guidance.
Stimulatory and provocative, witty and soulful, with a brilliant and moving introduction by the editor of this volume: Sarah Shapiro, who is widely celebrated for her sensitive and skillful projection of today’s Jewish woman’s search for her reflection in the mirror of our sacred traditions. This book promises a good read, to open your mind, address your neshama and caress your heart. And it delivers!
