Jewish Feminism: What Have We Accomplished? What Is Still to Be Done?
"When you are in the middle of the revolution you can't really plan the next steps ahead. But now we can. The book is intended to open up a dialogue between the early Jewish feminist pioneers and the young women shaping Judaism today.... Read it, use it, debate it, ponder it."
--from the Introduction
This empowering anthology looks at the growth and accomplishments of Jewish feminism and what that means for Jewish women today and tomorrow. It features the voices of women from every area of Jewish life--the Reform, Reconstructionist, Conservative, Orthodox and Jewish Renewal movements; rabbis, congregational leaders, artists, writers, community service professionals, academics, and chaplains, from the United States, Canada, and Israel--addressing the important issues that concern Jewish women:
- Women and Theology
- Women, Ritual and Torah
- Women and the Synagogue
- Women in Israel
- Gender, Sexuality and Age
- Women and the Denominations
- Leadership and Social Justice
