The Women's Torah Commentary: New Insights from Women Rabbis on the 54 Weekly Torah Portions
The Women's Torah Commentary: New Insights from Women Rabbis on the 54 Weekly Torah Portions
 
Rabbi Elyse Goldstein

A major contribution to modern biblical commentary-- and the gift of choice for every young woman's bat mitzvah.

Today, more than twenty-five years after the first woman was ordained a rabbi in America, women have an impressive group of spiritual role models that they never had before. Here, over 50 inspiring teachers bring their rich perspective--a woman's perspective, and especially a feminist perspective--to bear on the biblical text.

While it does include the stories of matriarchs and laws related to women, this book extends beyond those more familiar topics to the entire Five Books of Moses, offering us the first comprehensive commentary by women in a week-by-week format.

Each commentator is a rabbi ordained by the Reform, Conservative or Reconstructionist movements within Judaism. The first woman ever ordained in each of these movements is also a contributor. They are congregational leaders, Hillel college campus rabbis, academics and chaplains; they live in the United States, Canada, Israel and South America.

A book that will inspire anyone who wants to learn to read the Hebrew Bible from a fuller perspective-and a perfect gift for others or for yourself.

Rabbi Elyse Goldstein is widely recognized as an innovative and thought-provoking teacher of the Torah. One of the leading rabbis of a new generation, she is the Director of Kolel, The Adult Center for Liberal Jewish Learning, a full-time progressive adult Jewish learning center. Goldstein lectures frequently throughout North America. She is author of the award-winning ReVisions: Seeing Torah through a Feminist Lens.
