women praying 88.

Weeks before I left Australia forever, bulldozing through final law school
exams, I was called upon to form a women’s prayer group.I had only
myself to blame for this. Ever since I had come back from America, aglow with
the freshest experiences in the Jewish world, I had been speaking at every
corner about women gathering in prayer. My proselytizing had resulted in a
flurry of young voices imploring me to create the experience in the Antipodes.
Much was at stake for me in those final weeks of study, but I could not refuse
the pleadings, and so the preparations began.
