"This is an illuminating, kaleidoscopic film about women who are living their faith as well as their leadership abilities.
Hannah Heer skillfully conveys the 'voice of a woman.'"
- Annette Insdorf, author and Film Professor, Columbia University, New York
KOL ISHAH: THE RABBI IS A WOMAN opens a window into the world of four diverse women rabbis, women whose spiritual calling has led them on a path traditionally taken by men.
KOL ISHAH: THE RABBI IS A WOMAN provides
rare insight into the workings of the rabbinical world, as envisioned,
enriched and experienced by four women rabbis: Rabbi Laura Geller (Los
Angeles), Rabbi Judith Hauptman (New York), Rabbi Elisa Klapheck (Frankfurt
& Amsterdam), Rabbi Chava Koster (New York).
"Kol Ishah” means “woman’s voice” in Hebrew and the film conveys how the four women are able to embrace - and be embraced by their communities.
