Torah of the Mothers

Contemporary Jewish Women Read Classical Jewish Texts
  • By Ora Wiskind Elper, Susan Handelman
Combining erudition with a deep concern for the daily aspects of spiritual life, Torah of the Mothers is a landmark collection of essays and teachings culled from years of Bible and Jewish study by highly accomplished female Torah scholars and educators. Contributors such as Rachel Adelman, Erica Brown, Ilana Goldstein Saks, Simi Peters, and Leah Rosenthal bring their own area of expertise to bear, providing novel and refreshing insights into biblical and rabbinic texts. Each also offers thought-provoking commentary on the ever-present themes of exile and redemption, which are intrinsic to the ongoing saga of the Jewish people. These contemporary women also reflect upon the teachers who have personally influenced and inspired them, individuals such as Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik, Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, and Nechama Leibowitz.
