100 Women We Love 2015

We are thrilled to present this year’s 100 Women We Love—an incredibly diverse group of out entertainers, athletes, artists, activists, business leaders and elected officials.


Michal Weiner is a Jerusalem-born-and-raised composer, songwriter and vocalist. This recent grad (of the Berklee College of Music) has already built up quite the resume, including working with the CanvaSounds Collective and co-organizing the first Women Composers´ Concert at Berklee. (She´s also been a teacher and translator.) Currently, she´s working on an indie folk album with producer Daniel Alba. One thing she really enjoys about music is the creativity. “Working in the genre of contemporary concert music allows me to explore new scales, new tonal relationships and new colors. It allows me to constantly evolve the ways in which I express my ideas and to create a unique blueprint for each piece. I´m never bored, always looking for new entry points into the music.” She also loves working with others. “I´ve always found that the communication and cross-pollination of ideas, especially across artistic disciplines, brings me to more understanding and ideas than I would ever have otherwise.” One recent collaborative highlight occurred at an Asylum Arts Retreat, an educational and networking event for Jewish artists. “My head is still spinning from the enlightening and inspiring conversations I had with the artists in attendance-people from all disciplines with interesting ideas about the world and for new projects. I am already in touch with some people about project ideas moving forward, and I can´t wait to see where it all ends up.” -GH
