Book Review: Marriage and Family

By Leonard Gordon

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, June 2010

Leonard Gordon reviews Gail Labovitz's Marriage and Metaphor: Construction of Gender in Rabbinic Literature and Levirate Marriage and the Family in Ancient Judaism by Dvora E. Weisberg. These books delve into rabbinic texts to mine their views of gender and family. At a time when many myths about Jewish families appear to be falling, these insights can help us remain connected to our sources.
