Overview

Women of Reform Judaism marks its centennial anniversary with this collection of new scholarly essays which looks back at its history in order to understand how the hopes and dreams of its founders have come to fruition. Essays consider Women of Reform Judaism’s religious activities, contributions to American Jewish culture, programs and projects, and role as an agent of change. Sisterhood fills a void in the study of women’s philanthropic organizations, as no sustained attention has heretofore been paid to the contributions of women to the American synagogue.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A major contribution to the history of modern Reform Judaism, these invaluable essays illuminate a mosaic of Sisterhood activism that had extraordinary influence within and outside the American synagogue. Never again will these achievements be relegated to secondary status.”
—Joyce Antler, Brandeis University

“Women of Reform Judaism is the guardian of a long and immensely rich and wonderful history, brought to life by this landmark publication. Its members, its founders and its leaders—past and present—bring much kavod to our community, the Reform Movement and to k’lal Yisrael.”
—Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism
