Bread and Fire by Rivkah Slonim

Book Description

What does it mean to be a Jewish woman today? What does Jewish tradition offer to modern women who are looking for practical ways to bring spirituality and meaning to their lives and the lives of their loved ones? These questions and more are addressed in this book that examines the everyday lives of Jewish women and the struggles and aspirations and failings and triumphs of their spiritual endeavors. The women whose writings appear in this book span a wide range of ages, backgrounds, perspectives, and professions. In her own way, each one reveals God as an anchoring force in her life from the birthing room to the boardroom, cleaning in the kitchen or scrubbing up for surgery. In places as far apart as Jerusalem, Washington, DC, and southern India, these women help readers find the sacred within the apparently mundane. Bread and Fire contains moving teachings and honest reflections from more than 60 contributors, including Shoshana S. Cardin, Elizabeth Ehrlich, Ruchama King Feuerman, Susan Handelman, Francesca Lunzer-Kritz, Rachel Naomi Remen, Liz Rosenberg, Julie Salamon, Wendy Shalit, Sarah Shapiro, Esther Shkop, and Marian Stoltz-Loike.
