Tonight, our last blog in solidarity with Women of the Wall is a prayer, written by Becca, created last week at our Rosh Hodesh group program.
I am a Jew and I celebrate my life as a Jew.
I am a woman and I celebrate the joy of being a woman,
and dear God,
I am both Jewish and a woman and can only imagine embracing both passionately.
I want to draw closer to You, to learn more about how to learn Your truths, Your love, Your trust in the people of this world. I want to understand more and cannot get enough of Your Presence.
I am a Jew and a woman and I want all of that, and I celebrate becoming that Jewish woman, growing and blossoming in Your love.
I am thrilled to know that I, and my Christian male bell choir director, and my Conservative daughter, and my atheist son, and all the other people who I have not yet met - that we are all loved by You.
And I sing Hallelujah!
