This issue highlights Jewish feminists who find meaning in the High Holidays. Rabbi Rona Shapiro writes about Ray Frank, the first Jewish woman to preach from a pulpit. Janet Zimmem's article on the shofar examines the image of birth and Rosh Hashana. Other images and their connection to the High Holidays are also explored. Barbara Dobkin explains how tzedakah encompasses both charity and righteousness. The following excerpt explains a moving infertility ritual borrows from tashlich to accept an inability to conceive. In the tradition of Ma'yan, this issue suggests ways of connecting activism with the holidays. The changemaker interview with Sharon Bloome, co-chair of the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life, the inspirational stories of women organizing around domestic violence, and suggestions for joining the themes of Sukkot (holiday of booths) with programs for Domestic Violence Awareness Month close out the issue.
