From the Publisher"In introducing this collection of 14 essays on Jewish women's spirituality, Rabbi Drucker, founding spiritual leader of HaMakom: The Place for Passionate and Progressive Judaism in Sante Fe, draws on a Talmudic metaphor to present these midrash (new readings of ancient texts) on the 'often-ignored feminine in the Divine.' Women scholars explore how
modern Jewish women navigate familial and ecological relations; leadership roles; spirituality (drawing on female biblical and Holocaust role models, and other spiritual traditions); sexuality in diverse forms; and empowering rituals). The volume includes suggested reading."
Reference & Research Book News
"The book is a collection of essays that address topics that are both diverse and broad. . . It is an ambitious book, a brave attempt to cover so many aspects of what it means (and has meant) to be a Jewish woman."
