Readers will discover Lilith -- not as the night demon alluded to in Isaiah, but as another aspect of Eve herself. Sarah is a moon priestess and as great a prophet as Abraham. Miriam is not merely a figure of song and dance, but also one of revelation, a source of Torah.
These new stories were written to give biblical women the honor they deserve ? due them as prophets, rulers, and teachers. The Introduction to Sisters at Sinai offers the rationale and the need for midrash ? the writing in the margins ? expressing how it can be liberating as well as deeply comforting. Perfect for women's studies courses, adult study groups, confirmation classes and book groups.
