"My mother died when I was three. I don’t remember much about her. But I do remember, when she was very sick at the hospital, she said to me: ‘Never let a man steal your life.’"
“When the Divine is expressed only in male terms and images, it severely limits our collective and individual understanding. The splitting off of the feminine from the Sacred has a profound impact on our spiritual, mental, and physical health. Naming the Divine as male or cloaking the Divine in male-only images is one of the principal roots of women’s victimization. We have only to look at the world to see women’s disproportionate burden of poverty, malnutrition, and violence. Many of the women I interviewed felt themselves to be inadequate at their core, which correlates with the lack of representation or the outright denigration of feminine attributes in our symbols and language for the Divine.”

"So Ladies, the Homework for this month is to listen to your messages, the small conversations in the supermarket or with the taxi driver which can reveal to us worlds of self-enlightenment. The washing machine broke? What other areas of ourselves do we need to clean and/or refresh?Think action - I want to fix. This awakening of desire can only happen if I am Awake, I am listening to the messages given to me and making even a small change. Western society is big on taking New Year’s resolutions on the New Year, but Jewish wisdom teaches us to take resolutions BEFORE the New Year, Rosh Hashana, 30 days before, with the beginning of Elul.
We all know there are so many things we need to work on in our lives, but this Elul let’s follow the directions whispered in our ears and let’s take upon ourselves to actively fix the thing that was Divinely hinted to us. For 30 days let’s work on this thing and we’ll greet Rosh Hashana prepared and rebuilt.”
