Jewish Women Grab the Spotlight

Revenge. Beauty. Sacrifice. Birth. Murder. What if the stories of biblical times were told from women’s perspectives? What if your High Holiday sermon focused on what Eve might have felt or whether Sarah could have sacrificed a son? Jewish women decided it was time to collectively share their own insights, and the Women of Reform Judaism delivered—by creating The Torah: A Women’s Commentary. Eighty biblical scholars, archaeologists, rabbis, theologians, and poets created this 1,500-page work coming to you this December! Below are reviews and inspiring stories from the amazing women who built it.
