Words on Fire: One Woman's Journey into the Sacredby Vanessa L. Ochs
Ochs offers an account of her effort to find a place inher life for religion that is balanced by her feminist ideals. She spent a year in Jerusalem studying Torah, and sought out women who confronted the limitations placed on them by Orthodox Judaism. Ochs concludes that there is a place for women in the world of sacred learning, and tells how she reconciled her Judaism and her feminism.
