From poetry about the prophetess Miriam to accounts of their romances with Israeli soldiers, Jewish women are now connecting their Jewish and female sides in poetry and prose as never before. Henny Wenkart’s anthology is a wonderful compilation of some of this marvelous writing. With authors such as Leslea Newman and Lilith’s poetry editor Alicia Ostriker, this book covers a wide variety of personal subjects, from women in the Bible to their own grandmothers. This collection provides outstanding examples of some of the best Jewish women’s writing today.
