9780765799913: The Women of the Torah: Commentaries from the Talmud, Misrash, and Kabbalah

Viewed through the lens of the ancient talmudic, midrashic, and kabbalistic commentaries, this book examines, in biblical sequence, the scriptural passages related to our ancestral mothers, wives, and daughters. The chosen excerpts, clearly documented, seek to illuminate the question of what it may mean to be truly feminine, truly wise―how actions which appear to be malevolent, or at the very least, misguided, when superficially viewed, may, in fact, have been engineered to produce the greatest good.

Barbara L. Thaw Ronson has not chosen to view the Bible as an historical document, attempting to uncover its often cryptic meanings based upon the societal dictates at the time in question; rather, she explores the Bible by perceiving it solely as a timeless Divine doctrine: to illuminate the value and significance of prayer and the individual woman's relationship with her Creator (which informs her relationship with family and neighbor). and to discover and highlight the idea of Woman that exists independently of the era into which she finds herself born.

About the Author:

Barbara L. Thaw Ronson divides her time between the practice of optometry and her first love, writing. Most recently, she and her husband co-authored The Armchair Magician, a beginner's book on the psychology and performance of magic. Prior to this endeavor, Dr. Ronson enjoyed years in the theater as a playwright. Long interested in the hidden meanings of the Torah, she now looks forward to incorporating this knowledge with the performance of magic and storytelling. Dr. Ronson lives with her husband in New York City.
