Each contributor brings her own area of expertise to bear, providing novel and refreshing insights into biblical and rabbinic texts. Each also offers thought-provoking commentary on the ver present themes of exile and redemption, which are intrinsic to the ongoing saga of the Jewish people.
In Torah of the Mothers, the contemporary women also reflect upon teachers who have personally influenced them. Rav Joseph Dov Soloveitchik, Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson (the Lubavitvher Rebbe), and Nachama Leibowitz, of blessed memories, are among the mentors who played, and continue to play, a meaningful role in their lives.
Torah of the Mothers combines erudition with deep concerns for the daily aspects of our spiritual lives.
