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."—Judith Plaskow
