About this product
- DescriptionThe Order of Moed in the Mishnah and Babylonian Talmud outlines the way Jews celebrate their festivals. It is well kwn among feminists that Jewish life is t the same for men and women, and that women experience Jewish festivals differently. The purpose of the feminist commentary on Seder Moed is to outline these differences, as they are reflected in the mishnaic and talmudic texts, which have become canical for Jews and serve as a blueprint for the way they live their lives. In this introductory volume the questions of women's participation in Jewish festivals are handled on a more general and theoretic level than in the upcoming volumes which will be devoted to individual tractates. Various world-rewn scholars discuss the role of women in the tractates of Seder Moed from a variety of aspects - legal, literary, theological and historical.
