Reviews

"Hammer breathes a woman's breath into ancient narratives . . . her collection of new midrashim draws on her knowledge of the Bible, the rich tradition of classical midrash, and on her own imagination."--Lilith --Lilith
"[Sisters at Sinai] offers creative interpretations of the women of the Bible, infusing the stories with fresh insights and perspectives."--Jewish News of Greater Phoenix --Jewish News of Greater Phoenix
"These diverse tales draw upon Judaic traditions and understandings regarding the human condition as surely as the scriptures that inspired them. Highly recommended reading."--Bookwatch --Bookwatch
