Reviews - What do customers think about Men and Women: Gender, Judaism and Democracy?

A contribution to the debate   May 8, 2006
In her introduction to this volume Rachel Elior points out something, I for one, despite years of learning in Jewish sources, had never thought of i.e. that there is not a single Halachic, or Jewish philosophical or musar work authored by a woman until the eighteenth century. Things certainly have changed since then in the world of Jewish learning, but in its most frum bastions it is still an exclusively male reserve.
This group of scholarly essays discusses various aspects of the woman's present role in Judaism. It will provide original and interesting perspectives even for those who may be reserved about some of its arguments and conclusions.
A seminal contribution to Women's Studies & Judaic Studies  May 16, 2004
Compiled, organized and edited by Rachel Elior (Professor of Jewish Philosophy and Mysticism, Depart. of Jewish Thought, Hebrew University of Jerusalem), and published in cooperation with the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, Men And Women: Gender, Judaism And Democracy is an impressive and diverse collection of essays and articles contributed by eleven scholars and writers on the socio-legal status of women in Israel; the religious and cultural context of women's rights in Israel; and women's equality within the context of the religious codes and civil laws of Israel. A seminal contribution to Women's Studies, Judaic Studies, and Contemporary Israeli Social Issues Studies, Men And Women is especially recommended reading for students of the legal, social, and cultural issues under debate in Israel, along with insightful commentary with respect to the religious and political heritage of the past.
