Description
 
Jill Hammer

Publisher: JPS


This collection of 24 stories about women in the Bible draws from the ancient tradition of Midrash; it brings to life the inner world and experiences of these characters, weaving both rabbinic legends and the author's own imagination into the biblical texts. Readers will reads about Lilith, Eve, Sarah, Leah, Miriam, and many other rich and colorful women.

Hammer's introduction reveals the rationale for Midrash-the writing in the margins-and how it can be liberating as well as deeply comforting. Commentary on each of the stories appears at the end of the book. Notes include a list of biblical texts upon which the story is built, information about the rabbinic sources used, and explanation on how the story came to be written and why.
