Beyond the stereotypes, past the boundaries and the restricting self-definitions, we are women who seek wholeness, who seek to actualize our potential in all spheres: career, relationships, in our homes and our hearts. In Our Bodies, Our Souls Tziporah Heller, a world-renowned educator and author, shows us how we can achieve such wholeness. And surprise, surprise! The answer is in the Jewish tradition that so many women, particularly feminists, have been so quick to reject.
With warmth, wit and a rare depth of scholarship the author shows how the traditional Jewish paths can help lead to a spiritual awareness that works in perfect consonance with a woman's deepest instincts and needs. We learn how a Torah life both empowers and nurtures our innermost being. We see that we need not deny the differences between men and women, we can revel in them. Most important, we heighten our spiritual awareness, allowing us to live our lives to the fullest and to learn who we really are.
