By Rachel Adler | Go to book overview

Notes
Introduction
1. Miriam Peshowitz, "Engendering Jewish Religious History," in Judaism Since Gender, ed. Miriam Peskowitz and Laura Levitt ( New York: Routledge, 1966).
2. Riv-Ellen Prell, "The Vision of Woman in Classical Reform Judaism," Journal of the American Academy of Religion 50, no. 4 ( 1983): 575-589.
3. Generally, women are disqualified from witnessing ( B. Shevuot30a), but there are exceptions. For example, women's testimony concerning whether they were raped when taken captive may be believed when their testimony is to their own disadvantage -- for example, a wife of a kohen who acknowledges having been raped must be divorced ( Ketubbot27a-b).
4. Judith Plaskow, "The Jewish Feminist: Conflict in Identities," Response 18 ( summer 1973). Reprinted in The Jewish Woman: New Perspectives, ed. Elizabeth Koltun ( New York: Schocken: 1976), 3-10. I quote and cite from the Schocken anthology, because it is still easily available.
5. For a summary of these arguments, see Mary McClintock Fulkerson, Changing the Subject: Women's Discourses and Feminist Theology ( Minneapolis: Fortress, 1994), 50-58.
6. Ellen M. Umansky, "Creating a Jewish Feminist Theology: Problems and Possibilities," in Weaving the Visions: New Patterns in Feminist Spirituality, ed. Judith Plaskow and Carol Christ ( San Francisco: Harper and Row, 1989), 187-198. Reprinted from Anima, 1984.
7. Ibid., 194.

9. Carol P. Christ and Judith Plaskow, eds., Womanspirit Rising ( San Francisco: Harper and Row, 1979), 134.
10. Rachel Adler, "The Jew Who Wasn't There: Halakha and the Jewish Woman," Davka ( summer, 1971) reprinted in On Being a Jewish Feminist, ed. Susannah Heschel ( New York: Schocken, 1983), 12-18.
11. Moshe Meiselman, The Jewish Woman in Jewish Law ( New York: Ktav, 1978).
12. Judith Plaskow, "The Right Question is Theological," in On Being a Jewish Feminist, 226.
13. Cynthia Ozick, "Notes Toward the Right Question," in On Being a Jewish Feminist, 120-151.
14. Plaskow, "The Right Question Is Theological," in On Being a Jewish Feminist, 226.
15. Rachel Adler, "I've Had Nothing Yet, So I Can't Take More," Moment 8 ( September, 1983): 22-26.
16. Blu Greenberg's position may be characterized as pan-halakhic. See Blu Greenberg, "Coming of Age in the Jewish Community," Tradition ( spring 1977), and On Women and Judaism: A View from Tradition ( Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society, 1981). Rita M. Gross wrote several ground-breaking pieces on God-imagery. Rita M. Gross, "Female God Language in the Jewish Context," in Womanspirit Rising, 167-173, and "Steps Toward Feminine Imagery in Deity in Jewish Theology," in On Being a Jewish Feminist, 234-247.
17. Abraham Joshua Heschel, God in Search of Man ( Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society, 1955), 328.
