Women rabbis are changing the face of Judaism.
Discover how their interpretations of the Prophets, Writings,
and Megillot can enrich your perspective.
The Haftarah is a potent tool for understanding the values,
ethics, and moral lessons contained in the Torah readings. In this
first-of-its-kind volume, more than eighty women rabbis from the
Reform, Conservative, and Reconstructionist movements offer fresh
perspectives on the beloved texts that make up the Haftarah the
Prophets and Writings and the Five Megillot.
Based on readings that are rich in imagery some poetic, some
narrative, some dark and brooding their commentaries include
surprising insights on the stories of Deborah and Yael, David and
Goliath, David and Bathsheva, and the witch of Endor, among many
others. Themes such as Jerusalem as woman, the story of Jonah and
the fish, and other prophetic images are informed and challenged by
this groundbreaking work.
A rich resource, a major contribution to modern biblical
commentary, and the ideal companion to The Women s Torah
Commentary, The Women s Haftarah Commentary will inspire all of us
to gain deeper meaning from the Hebrew scriptures and a heightened
appreciation of Judaism.
