Overview

Rashi's Daughter, Secret Scholar tells the story of Joheved, eldest daughtr of Salomon ben Isaac (Rashi), one of the great medieval Jewish Bible commentators. At a time when women traditionally were barred from studying Jewish texts, Rashi secretly teaches Joheved.

As she nears marriageable age, Joheved finds her mind and spirit awakened by religious study. When she becomes betrothed, she is forced to choose between martial happiness and being true to her love of the Talmud.
