Women's Transformations of Public Judaism: Religiosity, Egalitarianism, and the Symbolic Power of Changing Gender Roles

By Sylvia Barack Fishman

Oxford University Press, 2001

This essay explores women's transformations of public Judaism, concentrating in communal rituals and life-cycle ceremonies, synagogue life, and diverse educational settings, which are arguably the loci most meaningful to westernized, religious affiliation Jews. Resistance to those changes is evidence of the symbolic power of gender role transformations.
