Groundbreaking work in Jewish feminist ritual how-to

Radical for its day, this book offers ways to access the feminine aspects of the divine and provides clear guidance for the creation of healthy, helpful ritual. The work attempts to stretch the envelope and does! Native American traditions are also drawn upon because the author lives in New Mexico and learns from area spiritual leaders in those traditions. Very worthwhile, exciting and thought provoking. Perfect for personal use and I have used it at Gettysburg College in a religion civilization class with great success.

great reading and sourcebook

Includes a feminist perspective on the different aspects of the Shekhinah (the immanent, usually seen as feminine, aspect of God). The most comprehensive discussion of eco-kashrut that I've seen. A very good discussion of the courageous recovery work of sexual abuse survivors as a positive contribution to community. Includes the use of mikveh (cleansing ritual bath) for renewal. Describes healing ceremonies and ceremonies for women's life-cycle events. Overall, a wonderful book both to read and to consult over and over.

A Feminist Spiritual Exploration

... explores the meaning of SHEKINAH (divine spirit), whom she interprets as the feminine spirit of love upon which we must lean in times of trouble. Her portrayal of lovingkindness is challenging to live up to, yet it is possible.
