KOL ISHAH: THE RABBI IS A WOMAN
by Hannah Heer
USA/A 2010 color 38 minutes

with RABBIS LAURA GELLER, JUDITH HAUPTMAN, ELISA KLAPHECK, CHAVA KOSTER

Official Website

KOL ISHAH: THE RABBI IS A WOMAN opens a window into the world of four diverse women rabbis, women whose spiritual calling has led them on a path traditionally taken by men.
“Kol Ishah” means “woman’s voice” in Hebrew. The documentary shows how the rich and complex nature of Judaism enables these four women rabbis to adapt religious texts and passages to reflect their particular experience, and to be able to embrace - and be embraced by – their communities.

"This is an illuminating, kaleidoscopic film about women who are living their faith as well as their leadership abilities. Hannah Heer conveys the 'voice of a woman' (as the title proposes) - which is as true of the filmmaker as her subjects."
- Annette Insdorf, author and Professor at Columbia University, New York
