Reviews

"Those who seek to connect to Torah and Jewish practice will discover fresh strategies for imagining a Judaism which reflects and respects women."
--Vanessa L. Ochs, author of Words on Fire; Department of Religious Studies, University of Virginia

"A re-reading of the Torah from a woman's perspective that is both liberal and traditional, accepting and critical.... Her discussions will open new avenues of understanding for any reader."
--Rabbi W. Gunther Plaut, editor of The Torah: A Modern Commentary

"Combines original insight with thorough consideration of classical Jewish commentaries to produce a fascinating set of fresh readings of the Torah and of Jewish religious practice."
--Prof. Susannah Heschel, Eli Black Professor of Jewish Studies, Dartmouth College

"In wrestling with the thorny and seemingly intractable issue of what feminists can and should do about the sexist content in Judaism ... blazes a trail that leads to the transformation of Judaism from within.... A pioneering and inspiring 'Guide for the Perplexed' for feminists of our time."
--Aviva Cantor, author of Jewish Women, Jewish Men: The Legacy of Patriarchy in Jewish Life

"The book is a thought-provoking commentary, revealing the female spirit found in the Torah. Synagogue libraries would find this book a good addition to their collection of Torah study and women's issues."
--Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter
