Back cover copy

Women in Jewish Culture: 'A significant contribution...What unifies it is the concern it shows for the Jewish woman's place in the social hierarchy, the official terms of her social roles and statuses, and her negotiation of them. There is really good reading here, ranging from riveting to fascinating to solid and interesting.' - Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, YIVO Institute for Jewish Studiesshow more

Review quote

"A significant contribution to the understanding of Jewish social hierarchy and women's place in it -- whether she be a religious leader, a teller of tales, a singer, a Chasidic high school student, or the modern Jewish woman struggling for religious status in a postmodern Jewish world... Packed with revelations. The reading is stimulating, sometimes startling -- always interesting." -- Jewish Starshow more
