Editorial Reviews

American Studies International
An excellent resource for scholars of both Jewish and lesbian cultures in the United States.

Women's Review of Books
A solid contribution to both Jewish feminism and lesbian and gay studies, breaking new ground in its focus on transforming Jewish religious life from a lesbian perspective.

Lambda Book Report
An extremely valuable and visionary source for Jewish lesbians who long to be recognized and to participate fully in mainstream synagogue life.... The author is to be congratulated for bravely taking on such an all-consuming topic and writing such an accessible, powerful and provocative book.
