What does it mean to re-vision Torah?
"I use the title ReVisions for this book because I want readers both to revise―in the classic definition of reexamine and alter―and to see the text anew, to have a new vision, a 'revision,' of Torah.... It begins with the notion that women see the text differently than men do, ask different questions and bring different answers.... This book is not about rewriting the Torah. It is about rereading it."
―from the Introduction
Rabbi Elyse Goldstein―woman, rabbi, scholar, and feminist―challenges and defends, rereads and reinterprets the ancient text, revealing to modern readers a way to see Judaism anew, for a new vision―a "revision"―of the Torah. Goldstein boldly brings the Torah into a contemporary context at the same time she honestly reconciles its past.
