The Women's Passover Companion: Women's Reflections on the Festival of Freedom
The Women's Passover Companion: Women's Reflections on the Festival of Freedom

Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld (editor), Tara Mohr (editor), Catherine Spector (editor)

Publisher: Jewish Lights

A powerful—and empowering—gathering of women’s voices transmitting Judaism’s Passover legacy to the next generation.

Women’s seders have emerged as one of the most meaningful and popular new rituals in contemporary Jewish life, allowing us a unique avenue for exploring our Jewish identity and deepening the spirituality of our Passover celebration.

In this groundbreaking volume, Jewish women from diverse backgrounds explore questions at the heart of this unique ritual. Like the haggadah itself, The Women’s Passover Companion boldly considers the meanings of exile, liberation, and redemption in the Exodus story. Together, these writings demonstrate the breadth and depth of women’s midrash that has come to the forefront of Jewish tradition in the past several decades.

Offering in-depth biblical analysis, political commentary, personal reflections on preparing the home for the holiday, and much more, this stunning collection is a resource not only for those seeking to organize a women’s seder but for all Jews who want to savor new understandings of our history and our future.

The Women’s Passover Companion offers an in-depth examination of women’s relationships to Passover as well as the roots and meanings of women’s seders. This groundbreaking collection captures the voices of Jewish women—rabbis, scholars, activists, political leaders, and artists—who engage in a provocative conversation about the themes of the Exodus and exile, oppression and liberation, history and memory, as they relate to contemporary women’s lives.

Whether seeking new insights into the text and traditions of Passover or learning about women’s seders for the first time, both women and men will find this collection an inspiring introduction to the Passover season and an eye-opening exploration of questions central to Jewish women, to Passover, and to Judaism itself.
