Speaking to her daughters as they will be in ten years or so, Sally Berkovic writes that "the moment that Avigayil, my first born, was delivered, I had a profound religious experience. I realized that feminist theologians who claim God is a woman are fundamentally mistaken--only a man would let this sort of thing happen." With wit and humor, warmth, and a down-to-earth sensibility, Berkovic lives out in her own life the contradictions between the opportunities of modern life and the constrictions of Orthodox practice. Her book is not an ideological tract, however, but a warm, personal account of her Orthodox upbringing, and the hope she has for herself and her daughters. Speaking to them, she admits that "sometimes I feel like this life your father and I have created for you is ... disconnected from our own childhood experiences and caught in a timewarp as Orthodoxy fails to address the changing roles of its daughters.... Because of that, it would be much easier to say Orthodoxy doesn't 'speak' to me, but I feel that I have the responsibility to 'speak' to Orthodoxy."
