URJ Press and Women of Reform Judaism are proud and honored to have been awarded the top prize in the preeminent Jewish literary award program:
The Everett Family Foundation
2008 Jewish Book of the Year Award
for The Torah: A Women's Commentary Edited by Tamara Cohn Eskenazi and Andrea Weiss
The Torah: A Women's Commentary is the culmination of fourteen years of work by more than 100 female theologians, historians, sociologists, scholars, anthropologists, poets, rabbis, and cantors from the United States, Canada, Israel, and South America. The result of their exhaustive research, thought, and discussion is an eminently readable 1,500-page volume, unique in its synthesis of traditional interpretation methods and critical approaches with more contemporary, topical methods that give new meaning to the text.
Study guides are now available from WRJ four to six weeks in advance of each parashah. Click here to download.
