Goddess Alive Radio is honored to welcome Rabbi Jill Hammer and Taya Shere, the Founders of the Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute, for an interview AND Goddess Full Moon Meditation on Thursday, March 5 at 8pm eastern!
The Moon is Full in Virgo at 1:05 pm eastern.
Rabbi Jill Hammer, PhD, is an author, teacher, midrashist, mystic, poet, essayist, and priestess. She is committed to an earth-based and wildly mythic view of the world in which nature, ritual, and story connect us to the body of the cosmos and to ourselves. She has been called “a Jewish bard.”
Taya Shere is a chantrika; wild earth shebrew; rav kohenet; embodying judaism & the sacred feminine.
The Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute revives and re-embodies Judaism through the gifs of women spiritual leaders and through experience of the sacred feminine. Kohenet facilitates the creation of transformative Jewish ritual that is embodied, earth-based, feminist and inspired by traditions of women’s spiritual leadership. Kohenet draws on ancient Israelite sources, Jewish texts and folklore, kabbalah and contemporary creativity. Kohenet on Facebook
