Item Description...
What is a "holy woman," or a holy man for that matter? According to the Jewish mystics, a holy person is someone who has not lost the holiness that every baby is born with. A holy person is someone who fulfills it. Stories about Jewish holy women have rarely been collected in such an engaging and entertaining form. The tales display a specifically female Jewish spirituality, giving us a peek into a world of devotional beauty that focuses on kindness. These stories of laughter and tears, humility and bravery, striving and trance, have an appeal spanning the denominational spectrum: they are spiritual nourishment for the soul. The rabbis say there are both male and female angels and angels are on earth as well as in heaven. These tales enhance our appreciation of the female angels on earth.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Inspiring and Much Needed in the Jewish community!  Dec 17, 2002
This book was wonderful, full of tales and folklore about powerful and holy Jewish women who often did not have the chance to tell their own stories. The author, Yitzhak Buxbaum, has a great respect for holy women and this becomes evident in his interpretations and comments about each tale. The stories are inspiring and fascinating - what makes a Jewish woman a holy person or "tzaddika" is not always what modern society thinks of when they describe powerful women, but these women are strong and courageous in their own right and deserve to be recognized. A book such as this one is long overdue. Recommended to anyone needing some added inspiration and heart warming stories added to their lives.
An extraordinary collection of stories  Sep 23, 2002
Kol Hakavod to Yitzhak Buxbaum! This is truly an inspirational and extraordinary collection of stories that will lift the spirit. The stories are mostly about rebbetzins (rabbis' wives) who are holy women and the selfless and spiritual actions that helped to define who they were and how they lived holy lives. This book, G-d willing, will help inspire all of us to do more good in this world, for our role models were indeed "Holy Women."
