This book is about women's spirituality and finding the full expression of women's potential. Although it is written from a Jewish point of view, it's major teachings apply to all people. The siren is an important image of women, and this book presents an interpretation of the siren that contrasts with a traditional point of view of the woman as a seductoress who is simultaneously dangerous. Drawing from her Sephardic heritage, Vanessa Paloma tells a story of a young woman who realizes her full potential based on a story about sirens. Using Kabbalistic teachings, Paloma shows the relationships between women, song, water, spirituality, and the fullness of creation. She gives an in-depth analysis of the lyrics of the Spanish-Jewish song, La Serena, and carries the idea further to teachings about the eternal kindness of G-d toward all humanity. When women's voices are heard openly and freely, they help create a proper balance in creation.
