In honor of the launch of the new podcast Hashivenu: Jewish teachings on resilience, created by Rabbi Deborah Waxman, we are highlighting rituals that have sustained the Jewish people throughout history. In Episode 9 we learn about the importance of lifting up the voices of women and non-binary individuals as part of the #metoo movement, in the context of the story of Purim, from Dr. Judith Rosenbaum, Executive Director of the Jewish Women's Archive. Below are 10 resources to honor women's voices recommended by Ritualwell.
