Jewish Women

Between Conformity and Agency

«

"This is a one-of-a-kind study of the lives, experience and self-determination of women as part of Jewish history. Combining her formidable expertise as an archaeologist with her singular ability to master other fields, Galor can move across time and space in a way that very few scholars can, and the result is a remarkable tableau—an account that comes as close as any book can to a three dimensional image of Jewish women at different periods of history. The book is also exceptional for the way it brings different subfields of Jewish history into a larger picture—very few recent books have accomplished this kind of intellectual integration with such depth and acuity."

Steve Weitzman, University of Pennsylvania, United States

"What a rich treasure! From historical traces, Jewish Women animates the stories of ordinary women who lived over the last two thousand years, offering insights into how they thought, acted, spoke, clothed and styled their bodies, bathed in ritual pools, worshipped, married, and divorced. Female agency, Galor makes evident, is nothing new; Jewish women have, for millennia, challenged patriarchal norms, shaping their own lives and history itself."

Karen Skinazi, Associate Professor of Literature and Culture, University of Bristol, United Kingdom
