Rosie the Davvener and a discussion concerning Conservative Judaism

Thanks to Rachel of Velveteen Rabbi for the hyperlink. Yours truly, Ms. Technology-Challenged, isn't even going to attempt to "import" this illustration. Just hop on over to Batya's Jerusalem Syndrome and check out the Tuesday, December 13, 2005 post, "Rosie the Tefillin Wearer."

Commenter Steg pointed out that the woman in question is left-handed, which is evidenced by the fact that she's wearing her tefillin on her right arm, rather than on the usual left. (Speaking from experience, I can tell you that it's difficult enough to "lay tefillin" [strap on phyllacteries]with one's good hand!). It's always a pleasure to encounter another woman who wears tefillin, and this one's a sister "southpaw" (lefty), too. :)

While you're there, check out the comments, which concern themselves mostly with recent issues within the Conservative movement. When I'm awake, I may post a comment there, myself.
