This movement includes shamans, kabbalists, wilderness Jews, environmentalist Jews, priestesses of Shekhinah, Jewitches, practitioners of Israeli nature spirituality, and many others. This earth-honoring Jewish movement is one element of a larger circle of earth-based practitioners in many lands and cultures.
Kohenet women are a vibrant and diverse group of women committed to deepening their connection to the divine feminine through an earth-honoring Jewish path and to embodying this work in their leadership and service work.
We are scholars and rabbis, ritual leaders and peace-makers. We are midwives and artists, lawyers and mystics.
Some of us observe Judaism in traditional ways while exploring and experiencing our connection to the feminine Divine. Some of us practice or have practiced shamanic, magical, or pagan spirituality, and are now exploring spiritual life in a Jewish context. Some of us focus on deity, while others give primacy to nature, or to community. Some of us pray to Goddess, others to both male and female faces of deity. Some of us do not pray at all, prefering meditation and reflection as our spirit-path.
Within Kohenet, we embody diverse perspectives and ways of being, and we welcome a myriad of approaches to Judaism and the sacred.
