Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the first women to be ordained as a rabbi explores how lesbians can shape Jewish tradition to resonate with their own experience.

Book News Annotation:

The volume's title comes from a practice started in the 1980s by Jewish lesbians who placed a crust of bread on the seder plate to symbolize their alienation from Judaism. Rabbi Alpert contributes to the protest with a compelling exegesis of biblical texts reevaluating the Torah's presumed prohibition of homosexuality that can be used as a framework for reexamining Jewish lesbian concerns such as coming out, sexuality, relationships to families, and contributions to a more just world within the tradition of their religion.
