Review:

"A wounderful weave of women's voices that invites the reader to participate in a conversation both thousands of years old and utterly new"-- Judith Plaskow, author of "Standing Again at sinai: Judaism from a Feminist Perspective"This book is a masterpiece that should be in every libary."-- "Publishers Weekly"""The Five Books of Miriam" has the spin of the storyteller, the feel of the folklorist, and the wisdom of the scholar. All women should carry this portable Miriam around with them. This is a necessary, strong, and witty commentary." -- E. M. Broner, author of "The Telling"

From the Back Cover:

Ellen Frankel, folklorist, writer, scholar, has written the book that lets the Torah speak to women and that welcomes women into its sacred pages. In The Five Books of Miriam, she helps us discover the stories, conflicts, and dreams of the many women - named and nameless - who populate the biblical landscape. Building on the centuries-old tradition of Jewish commentary, Frankel expands the conversation about what the Torah means to women. The Five Books of Miriam includes folktales and folklore, homespun wisdom, Yiddish lore, songs, midrash, modern scholarship, and feminist criticism.
