The Spirit of Torah - not just for men anymore.

Being an Aquarius myself, I've always felt a special connection to Hoshanah Rabbah. Women bring Torah to the home, to the children, and by extension to the future. We pour out our lives in the service of others. Without our active spirituality and participation in Torah, Judaism is crippled. We are echad, one, with the men of Judaism and no less than they in any way. It's past time that the women of Judaism should be respected and our spirituality celebrated. Miriam, Hulda, Devra and others were no less prophets than men. God spoke to them and they poured out truth like water for all to drink. So can we.

Have a spirit filled Hoshanah Rabba and Simchat Torah. Don't be afraid to dance.
