Mark/PT discusses one of my pet peeves

Kol Isha.

Thanks for the link. I've had some experiences in this area (none of them good) and I don't even know what to say. Then again, maybe that's the point. :-/

Sheyna, I've blogged ad nauseum about the halachic prohibition against men hearing a woman sing. At this point, I'm hesitant even to link to my previous posts on the subject,lest I bore people to tears, already. Oy. If you're interested, e-mail me and I'll send you the links.

Hey Shira,

thanks for the link, I really appreciate it. Kol Eisha is a really twisty issue. I attended a lecture which suggested that Kol Eisha really just meant that you shouldn't send notes to married women. It was very interesting, and (as I recall) had an excellent source sheet.

On that note, I attended a megillah reading that had mixed kri'ah, and it was really terrific. One thing that (almost) all commentators agree on is that women can read megillah, at least for themselves.

Annie, you're welcome.

I did finally give in and label all my "kol isha" posts, so, if you're interested, you can click where it says, "Labels: 'Kol Isha'" and read until you get bored out of your gourd. (If memory serves me correctly, my first post on kol isha dates all the way back to October 2004.) Don't forget to read the comments, many of which I found very encouraging. As a former synagogue-choir singer, I have serious issues with kol isha, so it's good to know that there's a wide variety of opinions on the matter.
