A Feminist Commentary on the Babylonian Talmud

The Mishnah and the Babylonian Talmud, of which the latter is a commentary, are treated by Jews as their second canon and many of them still live by their rules. Even those who do not realize their enormous influence on Jewish life and history over the ages. A feminist commentary to these writings is intended to uncover the pervasive and deeply ingrained Jewish conceptions of women and gender, and the way these have shaped women’s social and religious position within Judaism over the centuries.
