Gender and Jewish Studies: A Curriculum Guide
by Judith Reesa Baskin (Editor), Shelly Tenenbaum (Editor)
Published for the Jewish Women's Studies Caucus. Contains 30 syllabi and bibliographies on Jewish women by academics, community leaders and authors for use in education. These thirty syllabi and bibliographies about Jewish women by outstanding academics, authors and men and women scholars, are designed for Jewish studies courses in colleges. A brief section presents three learning programs for women's community groups by experienced leaders.
The editors and contributors emphasize that since women's experiences are different from men's, Jewish history and social science is incomplete without knowledge and understanding of women's lives and perspectives.
