Expanded Course Description
This course explores the various roles women have played in Judaism and in Jewish social life, spirituality, and culture from the biblical period into the beginning of the twenty-first century. Emphasis will be placed on the constructions of appropriate female roles in formative Jewish texts and the ways in which these traditional roles have been transformed in the past thirty years in response to social change and contemporary feminist movements. In addition to handouts in class from the Hebrew Bible and rabbinic and medieval religious, literary, and legal texts, course readings include one textbook, Jewish Women in Historical Perspective, one anthology, Yentl¿s Revenge: The Next Wave of Jewish Feminism, and several novels and memoirs from different historical periods.
