Rela Mintz Geffen"Millen's scholarship is excellent and the author, well-read in Jewish, general feminist, and philosophical literature, is in full command of her sources. But it is the deeply felt emotional experiences of Millen as a Jewish woman committed to living a halakhic way of life that trigger her commitment to this exploration of birth and death rituals as they touch women's lives. Her book's smooth blending of scholarship introduced and "justified" by personal experience gives it its special flavor. An impressive synthesis of the personal, legal, and feminist approaches, this volume will engage readers who are knowledgeable about Jewish law and those who are just beginning to explore the subject."
