Here, over 50 inspiring teachers bring their rich perspective-a women's perspective, and especially a feminist perspective-to bear on the biblical text. The first woman ever ordained in each of these movements is also a contributor. They are congregational leaders, Hillel college campus rabbis, academics and chaplains; they live in the United States, Canada, Israel and South America.

Although there are a very few tendentious (too gender-political) essays here, most of the essays here are very interesting and enlightening. Worthwhile for anyone seeking to expand their horizons re the Torah or are looking for good material for a weekly sermon (dvar Torah).

See my review under "The Women's Haftarah Commentary: New Insights from Women Rabbis on the 54 Weekly Haftarah Portions, the 5 Megillot & Special Shabbatot". I LOVE both these books & the writers. My spiritual insight has grown exponentially from both books.

I believe that I have already commented on this book. It is one of the first commentaries I reach for to get the distaff view of each portion (parasha) of the week. Then I will look at other commentaries before discussing it with others in my study group. Once again, this commentary might be well received by Christian readers as well, of course, as Jewish readers of any stripe.

Informative and a very interesting red.

Bought as a gift for a Bat Mitzvah. After reading through a bit of it, my wife now wants her own copy.

It is very interesting to bring the women scholars' perspective to our Torah study discussions.

This book gives a whole new perspective on the Torah and I would highly recommend it. It asks you to look at the Parsha's in a whole new light and I found it very enjoyable and informative.

This book is much better than I expected. As a woman, I was pleased
with the different point of view. This book is not at all radical.
