Reviews

Tamar El-Or is the foremost anthropologist working on the lives of religious Jewish women. . . . In exploring the spread of intensive Judaic studies among orthodox women as an institutional, social, and cultural phenomenon, she explores one of the most remarkable developments in contemporary Judaism.

--Matti Bunzi "University of Ilinois at Urbana-Champaign"

In this fascinating, provocative anthropological study, young orthodox Jewish women from Israel's Religious-Zionist sector are interviewed and observed at the Midrasha--women's study institute--of Bar Illan University as they endeavor to achieve educational parity with men.
