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."

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: THE RABBI IS A WOMAN provides
rare insight into the workings of the rabbinical world, as envisioned,
enriched and experienced by four women rabbis: Rabbi Laura Geller (Los
Angeles), Rabbi Judith Hauptman (New York), Rabbi Elisa Klapheck (Frankfurt
& Amsterdam), Rabbi Chava Koster (New York).
"Kol Ishah” means “woman’s voice” in Hebrew and the film conveys how the four women are able to embrace - and be embraced by their communities.
