Helen Steiner Rices Poems of Faith by Helen Steiner Rice

In this unique work, Rabbi Elyse M. Goldstein addresses the issue of women in Judaism. While it began as a struggle to be equal with men religiously, the feminist movement within Judaism has evolved in recent years. Seek Her Out: A Textual Approach to the Study of Women and Judaism embraces the idea that, as women become equal partners in the Jewish community, there is a need to look at Judaism specifically as women. This book focuses on three main topics of interest: the study of Torah, the observance of halachah, and the language of theology. How does the portrayal of women in the Torah affect our view of a womans place in Judaism? What is a womans role in the synagogue and traditional rituals? How should we speak about Divinity and what is the value of using egalitarian language? Texts from the Torah, Talmud, and Codes dealing with the issue are presented in Hebrew and English for study. A list of questions at the end of each section helps to examine the issues further, encourages discussion, and allows individuals to come to their own conclusions. Seek Her Out: A Textual Approach to the Study of Women and Judaism is designed to be used by congregations and clergy, individuals and educators. It is a truly innovative and eye-opening text.
