The Five Books of Miriam

A Woman's Commentary on the Torah

Add To Cart
At last, a book that opens up the Torah to the concerns and interests of women. Educated women who frequent synagogues and temples are hungry for good literature to study and discuss. The Five Books of Miriam meets this need. Paralleling the Torah's traditional division into weekly portions, each section of The Five Books of Miriam begins with a summary of the weekly Torah reading, and then offers a response. These commentaries are drawn sometimes from the collection of interpretation called the Midrash, or from the folk tradition, or from the author's own struggle with the text. They are told through the voices of Biblical women, and are rich with learning and wisdom. For all women whose religious foundations begin with Genesis, The Five Books of Miriam will be a beloved work to read and study, alone and in reading groups.
