Author: Rebbetzin Esther GREENBERG
An anthology of the Talmud's stories about women, from Seder Zeraim and Moed, as explained by the classic commentators.
The role of women in Judaism has become a subject of intense interest - and distortion - in recent years. Many people pontificate about what the Talmud and the Rabbis say on the subject, and back their often misguided claims with quotes that are either misinterpreted or wrenched from their context. Indeed, what does the Talmud say? And what is the true meaning of its sometimes allegorical, always succinct comments? These are the questions that the author undertakes to answer in this anthology. He collects a full range of the Talmud's halachic and aggadic statements about women in Zeraim and Moed, but that is not all. This volume contains not only simply translations, but also full detailed explanations of the passages, drawn from centuries of Talmudic and Rabbinic literature.
