The Voice of a Woman

The voice of a woman is immodest
The voice of a woman chants Torah
The voice of a woman demands justice
The voice of a woman comforts a child
The voice of a woman sings with joy
The voice of a woman teaches the ignorant
The voice of a woman prays with devotion
What should be forbidden is silence.

 We are stronger together.  Contact us about joining Sisterhood.
