The last four decades have seen a revolution in the Jewish world, as Jewish feminism has brought women into positions of communal leadership and women’s perspectives into the center of the Jewish conversation. As the people of the book, Jewish feminism has a rich literature. From foundational texts like Dr. Judith Plaskow’s “Standing Again At Sinai” came articles, magazines, manifestos, books, and even teshuvot (rabbinic rulings). We will be looking at recent Jewish feminist writing from the last decade, with our core text being “Yentl’s Revenge: The Next Wave of Jewish Feminism,” edited by Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, as well as additional articles and readings. Participants will be asked to read 10-20 pages each week in preparation for our discussion together. No experience with feminism necessary, and all genders are welcome to the conversation!
