Summary
  • There is a rapidly growing body of literature addressing women and Jewish tradition, much of which seeks to supplement Jewish texts such as the Talmud and midrash where female voices are generally absent. Biblical Women in the Midrash: A Sourcebook also seeks to influence the tradition by both providing an opening for women to study the Bible and rabbinic midrash, and by adding women's voices to the body of Jewish writings in the form of modern midrashim
  • The book opens with an introduction to Bible, midrash, and Jewish study in order to teach basic study skills and encourage further, independent learning
  • Individual chapters on several biblical women follow, each providing three elements: the biblical text pertaining to the woman; the rabbinic midrashim, which comment or expand on the story or character; and modern midrashim about the same woman, in the form of poems and stories by some of the most influential, contemporary Jewish women thinkers, including Alicia Ostriker, Marge Piercy, Judith Plaskow, and Ellen Umansky, among others
  • In this way, readers can compare the voices of the rabbis with the voices of today's Jewish women, and refer to the original text to draw their own conclusions
