From Memory to Transformation: Jewish Women's Voices

From Memory to Transformation: Jewish Women's Voices


Edited by Margie Wolfe and Sarah Silberstein Swartz


Not satisfied by the established roles assigned to them, Jewish women have begun to uncover their history, religion and culture using tradition and memory to inspire and transform their lives. In From Memory to Transformation, women activists, rabbis, scholars, writers and artists explore the themes of Jewish women's history; feminism, activism and social change; religion, ritual and spirituality; personal identity; and Jewish women's creativity. By editors of the prize-winning Found Treasures: Stories by Yiddish Women Writers, this compelling collection aims to define the ties that bind our past, present and future.
