About the Book
This is a pioneering work on what it means to “engender” Jewish tradition — how women’s full inclusion can and must transform our understanding and practice of Jewish law, prayer, and marriage. Adler’s writing is passionate, sharply intelligent and offers a serious study of traditional biblical and rabbinic texts.
Engendering Judaism challenges both mainstream Judaism and feminist dogma and speaks across the movements as well as to Christian theologians and feminists.
A dazzling weave of theory, textual analysis, and practical proposals for the transformation of Judaism . . . takes Jewish feminism to a new, richer, and deeper level.
