Yentl’s Revenge: The Next Wave of Jewish Feminism

Susannah Heschel, Danya Ruttenberg (editor)

Publisher: Seal Press Feminist Publishing

Thanks in large part to the struggles of their activist foremothers, today’s young Jewish women have a dizzying array of spiritual options. Yentl’s Revenge chronicles a range of experiences lived by an entire generation of women, from Judeo-pagan witches to young Orthodox mothers, from rabbis to sex educators. Contributors ponder Jewish transgenderdom, Jewish body image, Jewish punk, the stereotype of the Jewish American Princess, intermarriage, circumcision, faith, and intolerance. Essays include Bubbe Got Back: Tales of a Jewish Caboose by Ophira Edut, and On Being a Jewish Feminist Valley Girl by Tobin Belzer.
