OCTOBER 7, 2021-
I have been adding books to the collection since August. There are now a lot of new titles in the collection. Subjects include Torah and nature, journaling, poetry, fiction, the divine feminine, Sefer Yetzirah, and humor.
Check out the list of additions taped to the closet door in the library.
In Scripture by Lori H. Lefkovitz
This is a newly added title I am currently reading. I am finding this book to be quite interesting. Letty Cottin Pogregin says about the book “The impact of our sacred texts on the construction of gender, Judaism, sex roles, and family dynamics is explained in tightly reasoned, gracefully literate prose that one rarely finds in a work of scholarship.”
