Cold War - Janelle Monae

This is a cold war do you know what you’re fighting for?

Really feeling this song right now, given everything we’re talking about

In this official video of the song, where she simply sings in front of the camera in one take, Janelle Monae cries when she sings the lyrics, I was made to believe there was something wrong with me and it hurts my heart

When I listen to Janelle Monae and how she envisions revolution, I actually believe it can happen for all oppressed people one day. I find her music and everything she represents so inspiring.

raw.

For as far back as Joy Ladin can remember, her body didn’t match her soul. Gender defines us from the moment we’re born. But, how is that related to the lifelong work of being at home in ourselves? You’ve got to check out our show this week, "Gender and the Syntax of Being." Krista’s interview with her explores this question through Joy’s story of transition from male to female — as a poet, as a parent, and as a the first openly transgender woman teaching in an Orthodox Jewish world.

"Now we can get to the real stuff- what does it mean to be a Rebbetzin? What does a Rebbetzin do? Does ze cook a whole shabbes lunch for company or order takeout?  Does ze lead text study, leyn torah, or DJ a dance party? Does ze do the dishes and the cleaning or build a tool library for hir local havurah?  Seriously folks, this could be whatever we want it to be and the possibilities are kinda endless.  Maybe we can use this tumblir thing to throw out ideas and document radical rebbetzin activity we see around us.  But I’ll make an offering:  what if a Rebbetzin is someone who nurtures hir Jewish community from a non-institutionalized leadership position?”
