In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Women's Minyan at the Western Wall
  • Joanne Seltzer (bio)

they say sweet voices can seduce even God

we say God responds to the message not the pitch

they say their belief is protected by the Torah we say

every passage has a touch of ambiguity [End Page 121]

they say go home, yentas, attend your families

we say yes after prayer

Joanne Seltzer
