By Vanessa L. Ochs

The author, who writes about Jewish feminism, uses a family habit and her mementos to show how inclusion of the difficult passages of Torah is necessary. These passages help tell a complete story, as well as allow the reader to come back to something whose meaning may not be as difficult the next time its read.
