In the last few decades, as women have been ordained as Rabbis and cantors, Judaism has evolved and been transformed because of the addition of women’s voices and visions.  The Jewish art in this project reflects distinctively feminine and feminist visions. A feature article in the Star Tribune  (Delma Francis, March 4, 2006) noted:  “It was an intriguing idea, to explore prayer life through art…the works resonate with the passion the artists feel about expanding women’s roles in worship tradition, celebrating life among global unrest, and experiencing oneness—and an occasional wrestling match—with God.”
