Tracing the Contours of a Half Century of Jewish Feminist Theology
This essay examines the trajectory of Jewish feminist theology from the 1970s to today. It uses a synthetic, thematic approach, distilling concerns that appear across generically diverse theological writings over the last half century. These themes include the authority of Jewish classical texts and ritual practice, the meaning of embodiment, and the potential of theologies of immanence. The essay is framed by a consideration of the activist roots that fed Jewish feminist theology in its initial stages, on the one hand, and the changed conditions of production that characterize the present, on the other.
