Women of the World’s Religions 

Interview Series from the first-ever Women's Village at the Parliament of the World's Religions 

Short Interviews Served Up Weekly 

I was honored to be a part of a special project for the Parliament of the World’s Religions Women's Task Force: conducting interviews inside the first-ever Women's Village. The invitation put forth at the Interview Suite was: Let Your Voice be Heard! In total, I interviewed 71 women, and I will share all of them. Each interview packs a powerful dose of inspiration in a few short minutes. 

I was truly fortunate to sit with women as they spoke so profoundly from their hearts about their love-in-action toward the Parliament's themes of: a call to conscience, the support of the human rights and dignity of women, and the care of the next generations of children (which, of course includes care of our earth).

This episode features Hanna Yaffe.  Hanna Yaffe was born in London to a Rabbinic family. She has lived in Plymouth (UK) and Sunderland, studied in Gateshead, lived in Johannesburg, South Africa during the height of apartheid, an experience which shaped her into a humanist and spiritual activist by the age of 19. She moved to Jerusalem in 1975, where she is deeply involved with arts and culture as a means to Peacework.

Hanna has frequently shared forums with Muslim and Christian storyteller, touring around the UK on the "Spirit Of Peace Tour" with Sheik Hassan Manasra and she is the Jerusalem Coordinator of Spirit of Peace UK based charity. 

She is an active member of Shira Hadasha, a Feminist Orthodox Synagogue. She regularly leads prayers there and for women's groups around the country. She defines herself as an unorthodox orthodox Rabbinic Jew(ess)

 Hanna has produced three CD's:

"Birth in a Time of Bloodshed", a collection of lullabies from around the world written in time of war, exile and slavery.

"Lullabies from Jerusalem" a collection of folk lullabies sung by artists who belong to different faiths.  The disc was acclaimed by Martha Stewart as "Lullaby CD of the Year 2000".

"Return Again" is an anthology of Hassidic stories and melodies.​

This series of interviews gives me a sense of peace and reassurance. The women are activated, and their love cannot be stopped. And I believe that you will find, as I did, that listening to women speak from their fierce hearts, empowers us as women to find our own voices and to take action from our hearts as well. Find your place among these women… You can participate in Brecia’s Women’s Woven Voices project. 

Please Subscribe and help me to share these women! 

With love, Dale
