In Praise of "Babel's Daughter"
"With poetry, humor, and poignant disclosure, Chaya Lester entertainingly wove her personal story, evoking identification, self-revelation, and connection to Torah. Like a fine film, images and insights of Babel's Daughter have endured for me contributing to my own unfolding awareness."
- Eli Spitz, Rabbi & author
“Chaya Lester’s poetry is a gift to our era. Her deep yet soaring interpretations of Judaism bring it alive. Her works will uplift you and connect you in new ways to G-d and the world we live in.”
- Jennifer Laszlo-Mizrahi, Founder and President of The Israel Project (TIP)
Chaya is a woman of deep wisdom and spirit. She has found unique and profound ways to give over her teachings to a wide and varied audience, through deeply touching hearts and souls. She is a prodigious talent.
- Wayne Dosick, Rabbi & author
Chaya Lester's show was a delightful and intense exploration of the Jewish American spiritual journey. While Chaya shares her personal story through hilarious characters, exquisite poetry, and subtle but profound Torah teachings, she invites us to reflect and explore our own journeys. I left the show being moved deeply by reflecting on the wondrous way that God is present in even the most unexpected parts of my life.
