“the rising of the women is the rising of the race”

I try to be a MENSCH … a good person. It isn’t easy, especially alone. In my Jewish Tradition, there have been women, Rebecca, Miriam, Deborah, Esther, Ruth, Judith, etc., that overcame, not only threats to our people, but our own patriarchy that added an extra level of difficulties to help all the Jews. Our world has so many problems to solve, and we need all-hands-on-deck to try and solve them. But we need to un-tether ALL these hands, because only free hands can accomplish all we have to do. Add to that the beauty of creation in this world, art, music, … Hindering these creative women … & men just lessens our lives. The song says, “the rising of the women is the rising of the race”.   Living in Germany, Voting in NY
