"Written in the style of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's soulful stories, Jewish Tales of Holy Women fills a gap in placing the saintliness of women at the center." —Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg, author, The Beginning of Desire, The Particulars of Rapture, and Genesis
"Buxbaum's tales allow us to enter the hidden world of Jewish holy women. Deep, simple piety and generosity of spirit breathe through these pages. Our soul— the 'holy woman' in each of us— finds delight in these tales of virtuous realities." —Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
"These stories of holy women are pure light. From the simplest ones to the most miraculous, they radiate the particular kind of warmth and healing power that so many of us crave." —Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, author, With Roots in Heaven
"These wonderful stories are for men, women, and children of all backgrounds and all religions. They open the heart, inspire us to be better people, and fully honor the holy legacy of Judaism. Thank you, Yitzhak Buxbaum." —Melinda Ribner, author, Kabbalah Month by Month and New Age Judaism
"Yitzhak Buxbaum has performed a great service in compiling these beautiful stories of saintly women who expressed their deep connection with the Shechinah (Divine Presence) in private prayer and in manifold acts of loving kindness— feeding the poor, healing the sick, and escorting the dying. The tales show that even in times when gender roles were restricting, there were always outstanding women who excelled in the sanctified realms of study, teaching, prayer, and charity." — Rabbi Leah Novick
