Faces of Shekhinah, The Way of Priestess in the Jewish Tradition

The Yoru-Shalem Heavenly Temple Show.
By Artist Hannah Omer and Cyber-Architect Yitzhak Hayut-Man.

Faces of the Shekhinah (prophet/ess):

A prophet is not necessarily a man. Scripture records the stories of seven female prophets, listed below, and the Talmud reports that Sarah's prophetic ability was superior to Abraham's.

A prophet is not necessarily a Jew. The Talmud reports that there were prophets among the gentiles (most notably Balaam, whose story is told in Numbers 22), although they were not as elevated as the prophets of Israel (as the story of Balaam demonstrates). And

some of the prophets, such as Jonah, were sent on missions to speak to the gentiles.

According to some views, prophecy is not a gift that is arbitrarily conferred upon people; rather, it is the culmination of a person's spiritual and ethical development. When a person reaches a suffici

ent level of spiritual and ethical achievement, the Shechinah (Divine Spirit) comes to rest upon him or her. Likewise, the gift of prophecy leaves the person if that person lapses from his or her spiritual and ethical perfection.

The greatest of the prophets was Moses. It is said that Moses saw all that all of the other prophets combined saw, and more. Moses saw the whole of the Torah, including the Prophets and the Writings that were written hundreds of years later. All subsequent prophecy was merely an expression of what Moses had already seen. Thus, it is taught that nothing in the Prophets or the Writings can be in conflict with Moses' writings, because Moses saw it all in advance.

The Talmud states that the

writings of the prophets will not be necessary in the World to Come, because in that day, all people will be mentally, spiritually and ethically perfect, and all will have the gift of prophecy.

Female Prophets
Sarah Gen 11:29 - 23:20
Miriam Ex. 15:20-21; Num. 12:1-12:15, 20:1
Deborah Judges 4:1 - 5:31
Hannah I Sam 1:1 - 2:21
Abigail I Sam 25:1 - 25:42
Huldah II Kings 22:14-20

Image of Feminine Spirit Holding the Twin Flames, the Rising Sun and Setting Sun

Thirteen Archetypes of the Priestess from Jewish Tradition by Jill Hammer
The Hill of the Sun, "Tel Shemesh",

Rabbi Jill Hammer, PhD

(part of this article) Ostensibly, Judaism has not had a great deal to do with goddesses, and yet Jewish sages and mystics invented (or, more likely, harvested from ancient syncretic Hebrew practice) the Shekhinah, a tangible and feminine figure of divinity embodied in the earth and the human community. She was both the same as God (God in the most tangible form) and different from God (a loving spouse of God who would argue with Her husband about the safety of Her children). She was said to dwell in the holy shrine of the people, but also within the substance of the whole world. The sage Rabbi Joshua of Sikhnin describes the Tabernacle, Her dwelling place, as follows: “As a cave by the sea: when the waves enter it, it fills with water, but the sea is not diminished. So it was with the Tent of Meeting: the Shekhinah filled it with Her glory, but the world in no way lacked Her presence.” (Numbers Rabbah 12:4) The Holy of Holies, the central Temple shrine, embodied Her, and later She was embodied in the Torah. She was called the Tree of Life, as the goddess Asherah had been long before. Yet the lovers and keepers of the Shekhinah were always men: priests of the Temple, Sages of the Torah, and mystics who imagined themselves as the companions of the Shekhinah.

Modern Jewish feminists and shamans have expanded and changed this concept of the Shekhinah to reflect a non-dual and non-hierarchal model of God and gender. A great deal has been written about the reclamation of the Divine feminine in a Jewish context (Raphael Patai’s The Hebrew Goddess and Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb’s She Who Dwells Within are good places to learn about the Goddess in Judaic tradition). This re-shaping provides an opening for a model of female spirituality that embodies the Shekhinah, just as ancient priestesses embodied the Divine feminine in other traditions.

In contemporary times, work has also been done to imagine what the role of a priestess might be or have been in Jewish life: Savina Teubal hypothesizes biblical priestess-matriarchs in her book Sarah the Priestess. In her book Women Leaders in the Ancient Synagogue, Bernadette Brooten writes of the occasional elusive inscriptions on Jewish tombstones of the Roman period, such as “Maria, hiereia” (that is, Maria the priestess). Women in the Jewish Renewal movement have invented the title “eishet chazon” (woman of vision) in recognition of women’s spiritual achievement. And Deborah Greniman writes of claiming the term kohenet (the female term for priest in Hebrew). But what would be the function of a kohenet? The term is used in the Talmud solely to mean “the wife or daughter of a priest” (and it is still used that way today among Yemenite Jews). Could there be a place for a priestess in Jewish ritual?

Golden Calf Meaning, Song of Deborah and Miriam

title: The meaning of the Golden Calf
written by: Calf Woman

This is White Buffalo Calf Woman, your Twin Deer Mother! I am a "Wakan Iyeshka", this means I am a "Sacred Interpreter". I bring the understanding of the Star languages, which are many ancient stories that affect us today, during times of Evolutionary changes going on all around us. There has been much misunderstanding for many centuries and now Evolution will offer to us explanations we seek.

Please, realize the Golden Calf is here to teach about the golden light or illumination that comes from within our hearts, the third phase of evolution or the "Dawning" or period of "Heaven and Earth". Worship of any one thing is called Idolatry, but when we realize that all parts represent the sum of the whole is when we begin to realize that we are all part of each other. You are not to worship no other God, but the One, together as Oneness, that lives inside of you! The flowing of all that is relative to you. The only being that we listen to and obey is the Great Spirit Father in the sky or we call the unseen Heaven. But now is the returning of the Great Spirit Mother in the earth, from the same unseen Heaven. She brings with her, the law of Heaven, "LOVE" which are so missing in our societies around the world, but this was evolution and we accomplished our goals to get on the top of the hill. Now as we walking into the Valley of death, or the darkness and unseen world of Heaven, we begin to realize that Heaven is all around us and an integral part of our world inside our space. We begin to realize our Souls and this rebirth from within, gifts to us our Dreams. This is the difference now, that we are feeling. These changes about ourselves, with skills of enlightenment and some types of knowledge that seems new to our changing world views. Evolution is changing all of us and especially the children know the truth of tomorrow. The arts of real magic begin to blossom as the ancient star stories begin to sing again, a new within each of us. This is evolution.

We are moving from the second rolling hill in time towards the third rolling hill, where Heaven and Earth collide together. And the only possible way to survive in this arena, are those who walk and talk to be sacred and united in Spirit following Great Spirit Father and Great Spirit Mother, as the Song of unity. A marriage made in heaven. This unity is the light gifted to us, from Father, the flesh of our worlds, and the heart gifted to us, from Mother, the soul of our worlds. The law from the light or male the Red Road, the law of love, the law from the darkness or female the Blue Road, the law of sound (heartbeat or transmission). Light allows us to travel at 186,000 miles per second, a straight path (really, light travels in waves, it only has a task to achieve) or mission to expire towards death, to again be reborn, to be everlasting. And Sound allows us to travel at variables or waves or quality and frequency or tending to receive growth, to again be quality, happiness or sadness, both bringing us to tears, feeding the rebirth of the everlasting.

Listen to your heartbeat...come and receive your gifts, your sacred four directions of lights of the rainbow, the one clan, the house of the beloved, one G_ah_d. G is the utterance, the voice, now ah (crystal "http://crystal-indigo-children.blogspot.com", the perfect flesh of the first born child, the door between realms has arrived, the heart of heaven, where law is known, love and sacredness and finally, d is the transmission or signal wave. We have known voice and signal, but now the Golden Calf Brings the laws of Heaven, into each of our own lives. We do not teach children, to worship or parade to a statue of a golden calf. The Golden Calf is symbolic of the era of Brotherhood, the Cosmic Father's Great Golden Light, when the return of the North go home to the South. However, this Golden is the combination of the North East or the White Nation and the North West or the Yellow Nation (child), together they represent the light of the North, the Whiteys, here the Northern half, the light comes home and looks towards the South towards Mother, the NE, the Black/Blue Nation and Her Keepers (twin child heart), the Red Nation. Together, when the four sacred directions of Humanity is known, will our relatives return home to us inwardly (sisterly heart and soul), in order for us to become the outward (brotherhood and the flesh) illumination of true love and acceptance of all our relatives under the sky of Earth.

This is the year "2009" of the Golden Calf, according to the Yellow Nation (child, dream or illumination, the yellow way or the middle road, the way, I ching) and much will change over the rolling hills in evolution. Can you receive the love that God has sent to you? Then come receive your gifts, the truth of your soul, your four colors of the Rainbow sacred directions that is part of you( the garment of lights), the song from heaven that speaks the perfect you and questions that come to your visions of the World. This is what the era of the Golden Calf brings to you, "I am apart of thee". And as such we start to receive the gift of our relatives, the four sacred directions of humanity, White, Black(Blue), Yellow and Red.
Again, This is what the era of the Golden Calf brings to you, the illumination, "I am apart of thee".

your devoted servant,

The History Law





Ancient Hebrews worshipping the Golden Calf.
Detail from the "Moses" panel.

The presentation of the History of Law wraps around the building in a counterclockwise procession. It is divided into four distinct phases, which represent the establishment of Law in the Ancient World, Three Important Legal Documents, English and American Subjects, and higher up on the tower, a parade of the Lawgivers who carried an upheld the law from ancient to modern times.

The panels representing the Three Important Legal Documents, the Magna Carta, the Declaration of Independence and the Drafting of the United States Constitution are referred to as pierced panels, as the carving penetrates the depth of each panel.

The Ancient world traces the development of Hebrew Law, and progresses down through the growth of Greek and Roman Law. English and American Subjects cover the medieval, renaissance and colonial law, up to the American Revolution and strongly focus on the birth of civil rights.

Anglo-Saxon law was first codified in the Sixth Century by Ethelbert after the fall of Rome, when Britain fell to the Angles, Saxons and Jutes and other Germanic tribes that established small kingdoms. Ethelbert's code limited tribal warfare and established the first English Law.

John Milton, the author of Paradise Lost, is portrayed for his oration of the Areopagitica: the play that encouraged ancient Greeks to striv e for a purer democracy. Areopagitica is also held up as a model for freedom of the press, where the public is allowed to distinguish between choosing truth over error. Milton had lived through the English Civil War of the mid-16th Century, and he is depicted reading the Areopa gitica to Oliver Cromwell and Parliament in his opposition to censorship.

Moses Bringing the Law from Sinai (C. 1270 B. C.) by Lee Lawrie, North Façade

Western Law traces its ancestry back to the Ten Commandments, as a primary example of laws under which people were to live. They preceded secular law, but established principals for people to live together under a common order. Here Moses brings down the tablets that God gave to him to lead his people, a seminal event in Judeo-Christian history.

Artistically, Lawrie uses Assyrian style in influencing his design. Deborah Judging Israel, (cl 970B.C.) By Lee Wawrie, West Facade

Before the monarchy was established, charismatic judges settled disputes in the ancient world. Deborah provided encouragement to the Hebrew people as they sought liberation from Canaanite oppression. This demonstrated the covenant that God would protect his people only if they obeyed his law.



The Judgement of Solomon (c. 970 B.C.) by Lee Lawrie, West Facade

Two women claimed the same child as their own. Solomon offered to cut the baby in half to settle the dispute. Solomon reasoned that the real mother would love the child more. To this, one woman replied she would rather forfeit the child than see to see him killed. Solomon so judged her to be the true child's mother, and so awarded her the child.



Salon Gives a New Constitution to Athens (C. 579 B.C.) by Lee Lawrie, West Facade

In the 6th Century B.C., Athens was in turmoil. Solon was elected as Archon, or Magistrate in 594 B.C, He enacted new reforms that balanced the law to a more realistic and practical level, rather than a set of purely unworkable ideals. Enslaved debtors were freed, and laws were created to manage land and to coin money. He also created a peoples' assembly and the Peoples' Court.


The laws were published after sufficiently discussing and amending existing law, considering all opinions, and then incorporating these elements into this new body of law.

The laws were then adopted and established the basis of all public and private law, standard throughout the Empire.

A Roman soldier trumpets their notice. Note the characters known by their tools: the mason, the farmer, the builder and a Plebian woman behind them calling others to come see the new laws.

The Song of Deborah: Judges Chapter 5!

The victory songs, the "Song of Deborah" in Judges 5:2 to 5:31 and the "Song of the Sea" in Exodus 15:1 to 15:20, are the oldest passages in the Bible based on their ancient Hebrew style (similar to comparing old English with modern English). Based on language style alone both must date to before 1050 BC. Yet the battle described in the Song of Deborah must date to before 1174 BC when the tribe of Dan moved from the coast to conquer (or to occupy a city already destroyed) an inland city which came to be called Dan.

Deborah blames Israel’s lack of leadership for their present circumstances. She also extols the virtues of those who have risen up to lead Israel to fight the good fight. Leaders are NOT to follow their own humanitarian ideologies, but RATHER they are to obey the Word of God Roadmap to Peace is a wrong minded attempt of a President to be fair and promote peace according to his own values, apart from God'

Judges 5

1Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day, saying,2Praise ye the LORD for the avenging of Israel, when the people willingly offered themselves. 3Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel. 4LORD, when thou wentest out of Seir, when thou marchedst out of the field of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens dropped, the clouds also dropped water. 5The mountains melted from before the LORD, even that Sinai from before the LORD God of Israel. 6In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were unoccupied, and the travelers walked through byways. 7The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a mother in Israel. 8They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel? 9My heart is toward the governors of Israel, that offered themselves willingly among the people. Bless ye the LORD. 10Speak, ye that ride on white asses, ye that sit in judgment, and walk by the way. 11They that are delivered from the noise of archers in the places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the LORD, even the righteous acts toward the inhabitants of his villages in Israel: then shall the people of the LORD go down to the gates. 12Awake, awake, Deborah: awake, awake, utter a song: arise, Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam. 13Then he made him that remaineth have dominion over the nobles among the people: the LORD made me have dominion over the mighty. 14Out of Ephraim was there a root of them against Amalek; after thee, Benjamin, among thy people; out of Machir came down governors, and out of Zebulun they that handle the pen of the writer. 15And the princes of Issachar were with Deborah; even Issachar, and also Barak: he was sent on foot into the valley. For the divisions of Reuben there were great thoughts of heart. 16Why abodest thou among the sheepfolds, to hear the bleatings of the flocks? For the divisions of Reuben there were great searchings of heart. 17Gilead abode beyond Jordan: and why did Dan remain in ships? Asher continued on the sea shore, and abode in his breaches. 18Zebulun and Naphtali were a people that jeoparded their lives unto the death in the high places of the field. 19The kings came and fought, then fought the kings of Canaan in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo; they took no gain of money. 20They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera. 21The river of Kishon swept them away, that ancient river, the river Kishon. O my soul, thou hast trodden down strength. 22Then were the horsehoofs broken by the means of the pransings, the pransings of their mighty ones. 23Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the LORD, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty. 24Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent. 25He asked water, and she gave him milk; she brought forth butter in a lordly dish. 26She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples. 27At her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay down: at her feet he bowed, he fell: where he bowed, there he fell down dead. 28The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried through the lattice, Why is his chariot so long in coming? why tarry the wheels of his chariots? 29Her wise ladies answered her, yea, she returned answer to herself, 30Have they not sped? have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two; to Sisera a prey of divers colours, a prey of divers colours of needlework, of divers colours of needlework on both sides, meet for the necks of them that take the spoil? 31So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years.

The Song of Miriam, Prophetess, Aaron's Sister, Exodus 15! The Song of the Seas

Exodus 15 (King James Version)

1Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

2The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.

3The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

4Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.

5The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.

6Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

7And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.

8And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

9The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.

10Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

11Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

12Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.

13Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

14The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.

15Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.

16Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

17Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which thy hands have established.

18The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.

19For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.

20And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.

21And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

22So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.

23And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.

24And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

25And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,

26And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

27And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.
