Plaskow's work is especially relevant to Jewish feminists, but anyone who is interested in reconciling an ancient path with a modern sense of feminist justice would do well to read this book. Plaskow does not reject tradition, nor does she make apologies and excuses for injust parts of it (like the demonization of the "niddah"), but rather looks deeply into the past and present to find, nurture, and embrace what is right, and remedy what is wrong. An excellent read!

She observes that Jewish feminists "dwell in a state of self-contradiction that can be escaped only by choosing between aspects of our identity." (Pg. ix) She identifies her central reason for writing a Jewish feminist theology as "to articulate one version of this vision and to foster its growth." (Pg.
