Overview

Translated from Hebrew and defined as the dwelling presence of God, Shekhinah is the feminine face of God in Judaism. Novick combs Jewish history and scripture to reveal evidence of Judaism's rich history of the Sacred Feminine. She explores how the concept of a feminine aspect of Yahweh developed and was preserved in the tradition. Novick calls Judaism to come to terms with its pagan past and acknowledge the history of the Divine Feminine as part of the traditional Jewish path. She also uncovers the Shekhinah's integral role in the sacred marriage, the Kabbalah, the Sabbath, and other Jewish rituals and prayers.
