Ma'yan Journey - Spring 2000

By Rona Shapiro, Ilana Blumberg, Beth Brenzel, Sandy Eisenberg Sasso

Ma'yan, Spring 2000

The role and presence of women at Sinai is debated by biblical commentators, contemporary feminist scholars and poets. Today, women are renewing a connection with Sinai in unprecedented ways. This issue of Journey explores the contours of women's new relationships with Torah and hopes to encourage the reader to pursue their own relationship to Torah. Beth Brenzel explores her relationship with Torah. An excerpt from a fictional work by Ilana Blumberg describes a woman's decision to study Torah. Rona Shapiro reminds us that, despite the problems of justice, theology, or gender, more unites us than divides us, and this unity should be celebrated. The changemaker profile features Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, the Rabbi of Congregation Beth-El Zedeck in Indianapolis, since 1977. A collection of excerpts illustrates lessons women have learned from Sinai and suggests ideas for activities and discussions.
