Ofir Ben-Shitrit gets some company: "Anonymous"

Ofir Ben-Shitrit is now joined by another Orthodox woman who loves to sing for all to enjoy.  Unfortunately, since she's a Baalat T'shuvah (roughly, "returnee" to Orthodoxy) to the "Ultra-Orthodox" version of Orthodox Judaism, she's afraid to reveal her identity, as many Orthodox Jews hold the opinion that it's forbidden for a man to listen to a woman sing.  (See here.)  I wish her luck--it's a tough decision, whether to go public and ruin her "Ultra" status or go silent again and remain vocally frustrated.
