Chanah's Voice:
A rabbi wrestles with gender, commandment, and the women’s mitzvot of baking, bathing and brightening

By Haviva Ner-David

Advance Praise:

“A beautiful example of how to wrestle with God, Torah and one’s self. Ner-David’s story overflows with her knowledge of our past, awareness of our present and hope for our future, both as Jews and as human beings.”
Brad Hirschfield, author of You Don’t Have to Be Wrong for Me to Be Right

“Haviva Ner-David is among the leading ‘refusers’ of our time—refusing to choose between traditional Jewish practice and feminism, refusing to be cowed by those who cannot comprehend a woman ordained by an Orthodox rabbi.
“Chanah’s Voice marks a new and important phase in her defiance of expectation and boundary. Here, the iconoclastic halachic feminist turns to the most traditional of Jewish women’s mitzvot, and finds not the bromides of hearth and home, but new challenges, new insights, and, at times, new theological innovations. This is a deceptively simple book, which is to say, not simple at all. Read it and have your horizons expanded.”
Jay Michaelson, author of Everything is God: The Radical Path of Nondual Judaism
