Up To the Top Of the Mountain-Again

APTOPIX Mideast Israel Wall Women

22 years ago, Judith Plaskow published “Standing Again at Sinai: Judaism From a Feminist Perspective.” The influential feminist critique proved that Jewish history including the Torah must be reshaped to inject women’s viewpoints and visions into our Jewish communal consciousness. Today, we have a direct result with the actions of The Women at The Wall.

Shavuot marks the end of the counting of the Omer and the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Tonight, we study through the night in anticipation of the revelation at Sinai. Tomorrow, we eat cheesecake to have milk and honey under our tongues.

Rise up and enjoy.

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
