What Else She Said

Since I was 12 I went to the women's spirituality conference with my mom at the JCC and that was always so powerful. The first time I went I was like 'What's up with these women? They're crazy!' Shefa Gold was there and she was chanting, she was doing one of her 'ai ai ais,' just screaming it out, with a drum, and I was just like 'oh my god!' But after a few minutes I was like, 'Yeah, I love that, that's my scream also.'... It was just so powerful having a community of women, and just seeing a different model of Judaism.
