Sheh-asani . . . (updated)

Start with the original.

I should have taken a hint from "sheh-asani bat chorin"--the obvious answer to the grammatical/modern history problem created by the use of the word "Yisraelit" is to use the very traditional term "bat Yisrael, daughter of Israel."  The b'rachah/blessing, in its egalitarian form, would then be "Baruch . . . sheh-asani bat Yisrael, Blessed [is the One who] made me a daughter of Israel (a descendant of Yaakov Avinu/Jacob Our Father)."  It shouldn't have taken a year and a half for this to dawn on me, but better late than never.

Okay, back to the Pesach preparations (also known as the Kashering-for-Pesach Kitchen Capers  :) ).  Pesach Kasher v'Sameach--Have a Kosher and Happy Passover.
