Families and the Jewish Community: A Feminist Perspective

By Martha Ackelsberg

Queens College Press, 1985

The meaning and experience of families has changed radically in the U.S. over the past few decades; those changes have implications for the Jewish community as well. The require a rethinking of what many take to be essential elements of Jewish identity and community. The issues involved in such rethinking appear to be particularly problematic for Jewish feminists. We need to reconsider both what we mean by family and what we see as the relation of individuals and families to the Jewish community.
