Reviews

"A provocative collection of writings that attempt to untangle complicated webs of anti- Semitism, racism, and misogyny, The Flying Camel presents a challenging introduction to complex struggles around issues of identity and community."
"What a treasure this book holds! For many of us whose Eastern European culture has for so long been taken as the Jewish norm, The Flying Camel provides the missing tiles in the mosaic puzzle which is the global story of Jewish women's lives."
