  1. I was at the Mishkan Shalom presentation and was very moved by your passionate dedication to the women and the issue. Brava!!!
    I am a rabbi and also teach meditation and yoga. I still have many commitments but I would be interested in working with the women in some capacity if we can work out the timing. Blessings.
