Item description for Torah of the Mothers: Contemporary Jewish Women Read Classical Jewish Texts by Susan A. Handelman & Ora Wiskind Elper...

Ours is an era of profound spiritual searching, in which the role of the Jewish woman is being reexamined. Torah of the Mothers is a landmark collection of essays and teachings culled from years of Bible and Jewish study by highly accomplished women Torah scholars and educators.

Each contributor brings her own area of expertise to bear, providing novel and refreshing insights into biblical and rabbinic texts. Each also offers thought-provoking commentary on the ever present themes of exile and redemption, which are intrinsic to the ongoing saga of the Jewish people.

In Torah of the Mothers, contemporary women also reflect upon teachers who have personally influenced and inspired them. Rav Joseph Dov Soloveitchik, Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Nechama Leibowitz, of blessed memories, are among the mentors who played, and continue to play, a meaningful role in their lives.

Torah of the Mothers combines erudition with deep concern for the daily aspects of our spiritual lives.

Torah Of The Mothers: Contemporary Jewish Women Read Classical Jewish Texts is a remarkable and unique collection of essays and teachings culled from years of Bible and Judaic studies by highly accomplished Torah scholars and educators who are also women.
