Womens Torah Commentary by Elyse Goldstein

Book Description

Today more than twenty-five years after the first woman was ordained a rabbi women have an impressive group of spiritual role models that they never had before. Here over 50 inspiring teachers bring their rich perspective--a women's perspective and especially a feminist perspective--to bear on the biblical text. While it does include the stories of matriarchs and laws related to women this book extends beyond those more familiar topics to the entire Five Books of Moses offering us the first comprehensive commentary by women in a week-by-week format. Each commentator is a rabbi ordained by the Reform Conservative or Reconstructionist movements within Judaism. The first woman ever ordained in each of these movements is also a contributor. They are congregational leaders Hillel college campus rabbis academics and chaplains; they live in the United States, Canada, Israel and South America. A book that will inspire anyone who wants to learn to read the Hebrew Bible from a fuller perspective - and a perfect gift for others or for yourself.
