Jewish Women You Should Know
The true story of a girl who learned to believe in herself

Dear reader,

I was teaching a group of young women and I asked them to raise their hand if they loved themselves. All the hands eventually rose, but reluctantly.

I then asked them to raise their hand if they felt that they had any ugly faults or flaws that they would like to change. Surprisingly, the hands now all rose swiftly and unhesitatingly.

We could translate this as a lack...

We need to rewrite our script, changing ourselves from the victim in the story to the hero. Turning ourselves into brave warriors rather than figures of pity will give us the strength to keep on going through the wilderness of our own personal hardships, until each of us reaches our own, individual Mount Sinai.
