Dirshuni, is a groundbreaking collection of original midrashim written by contemporary Israeli women. Based on classic biblical and rabbinic narratives, it creates a place for contemporary women to see themselves in the sacred texts.
Women writers, from all denominations, political stripes and ethnic backgrounds offer new takes on traditional stories. Their commentaries provide us a glimpse into what the beit midrash (study hall) of old could have sounded like had it included women’s voices.
No knowledge of Hebrew necessary–all welcome!
