Over a 4-week series, we will read and discuss the text, "Chanah's Voice," by Rabbi Haviva Ner-David, author of "Life on the Fringes."
In this spiritual memoir, Haviva explores the meaning of the three ritual commandments given to women - Challah, the taking of an offering from the baking dough; Niddah, separation during menstruation followed by immersion; and Hadlakat haNer, lighting the Shabbat candles.

For those who are interested, additional sessions will be scheduled: challah baking; a visit to the mikveh; and making beeswax candles.
