Feminism and Modern Jewish Theological Method


Lori Ellen Krafte-Jacobs

A sound approach to overcoming the Jewish community's historical exclusion of women must go beyond the current agenda for change. To be enduring, that agenda must be grounded in an underlying holistic vision or method, so reforms are not mere ad hoc improvements that leave an inequitable structure in place. Accordingly, this book examines the methodological options available to contemporary Jews, evaluating each on the basis of its ability to accommodate the kinds of development modern sensitivities require.
