Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Growing up in the 1960s, the notion of a woman rabbi, a woman Israeli Supreme Court judge, an Orthodox female Talmud scholar, or an Orthodox synagogue where women read the Torah from their side of the mechitzah were impossible, even ridiculous scenarios. Yet in the modern day, all of this is reaching the stage of normative. What's left for Jewish feminism to accomplish? What makes a Jewish woman today, and how has feminism affected her identity? Is the next generation of young Jewish women braced to tackle new issues or do they see Jewish feminism as their mother's issue? This empowering anthology looks at the growth and accomplishments of Jewish feminism and what that means for Jewish women today and tomorrow. It features the voices of women in the Reform, Reconstructionist, Conservative, and Orthodox movements; rabbis, congregational leaders, artists, writers, community service professionals, academics, and chaplains; women from the United States, Canada, and Israel.

Rabbi Dr. Haviva Ner-David offers an insightful overview and analysis of the relationship between feminism and halakhah today, comparing the scholarship of Professors Tamar Ross and Rachel Adler and emerging with perceptive understandings about gender in Orthodoxy.

The article is excerpted from the recent release of New Jewish Feminism.
