Rituals for Jewish Women Around the Year
by Penina V Adelman
A year long guide to women’s group celebration of Rosh Hodesh, the New Moon. Adelman develops a blend of new and traditional ritual, song, prayer, meditation and Midrash for each month, from themes linking the Jewish calendar with women’s spiritual and life cycle.
This 10th anniversary edition includes a preface describing current trends in Jewish women’s spiritual activity in the US. New rituals have been added for Bat Mitzvah, adoption, child weaning, alternative weddings, pregnancy loss, ecological holidays and an essay by Beth Haber, ‘Images of Women in Biblical Art’ with illustrations. Includes a bibliography and ritual photos.
‘The life-cycle rituals in this book are appealing…they break totally new ground and allow the intensely private to be shared.’ Lilith Magazine,#16(150 Pages)
