9780060608712: The Telling: The Story of a Group of Jewish Women Who Journey to Spirituality Through Community and Ceremony
From Library Journal:

Broner chronicles the developing sense of community and of the sacred that she and other Jewish women experienced from their first "Seder of the North" (in Haifa, 1975) to the present. The Seder of the North was a time of reversal, when men prepared and served a meal for women working prayerfully on a new Haggadah (the final result of which is included in the present volume). This Haggadah recalls the holy history of the exodus of women and the legacy of Miriam. This book celebrates the joy of women discovering their own spiritual identity in the Jewish tradition; it also shares the pain of charting a new course--the pain that a mother of sons feels when only the daughters read Torah for the group, the pain of criticism from traditional Jews, and the pain of struggling in a healing ceremony to address their own woundedness. Essential for seminaries (Christian as well as Jewish), feminist collections, and public libraries.

From Publishers Weekly:

This is an inspiring, tender recounting of the successful efforts of a group of Israeli and American women to create their own Passover seder based on their experiences of Judaism. Broner ( A Weave of Women ), was an early organizer. The quest began in 1975 in Haifa and came to fruition the following year in a now annual women's seder held in Manhattan, attended by Gloria Steinhem, Letty Pogrebin, Bella Abzug, Grace Paley and a host of other Jewish women whose roles at the seder, as well as the food they bring, are reported here. Even the luminaries initially felt shy at this religious innovation, but they soon built a feminist and spiritual community they call the Seder Sisters. The Woman's Haggadah, written by Broner and Nimrod, an Israeli, offers rituals oriented around the wisdom and sagas of Old Testament women.
