    Genesis ends with Israel in Egypt, ready for the coming of Moses and the Exodus. What is needed is action to make the world a more pleasant place — something the Jews experienced with the establishment of the State of Israel in and its enormous successes, despite the animosity of a large part of the Arab and Western world. Most Jewish feminist critiques addressing broader theological concerns are conducted by non-Orthodox, Anglo-educated women. Failure to deal with it seriously threatens the viability of the Judaism of Torah and Mitzvoth in the contemporary world. As Ross understands the matter, feminism's critique of traditional religion lies in its emphasis on the human, rather than transcendent, element of all cultural phenomena, including religion.

    I may have misstated myself, so feel free as always to comment and interject. Numbers begins at Mount Sinaiwhere Expanding the Palace of Torah book Israelites have received their laws and covenant from God and God has taken up residence among them in the sanctuary. The earliest of these sources, J, would have been composed in the late 7th or the 6th century BCE, with the latest source, P, being composed around the 5th century BCE. The first sermon recounts the forty years of wilderness wanderings which had led to that moment, and ends with an exhortation to observe the law or teachingslater referred to as the Law of Moses ; the second reminds the Israelites of the need to follow Yahweh and the laws or teachings he has given them, on which their possession of the land depends; and the third offers the comfort that even should Israel prove unfaithful and so lose the land, with repentance all can be restored.

    These are not just sweet observations on the Haggadah, to be repeated at the Seder table. Perhaps, adding of women to the Halakhic conversation won't measurably change things that we do in or out of synagogue. Expanding the Palace of Torah offers a broad philosophical overview of the challenges the women's revolution poses to Orthodox Judaism, and Orthodox Judaism's response to those challenges. I may have misstated myself, so feel free as always to comment and interject. Alas, those who have the authority to impose Laws of the Torah do not care to understand the nature of the confrontation with the Zeitgeist.

Thu, 14 Mar It was no longer left in the hands of God Who Expanding the Palace of Torah book once given the Torah but now demanded of the Sages to develop and even improve it.

Expanding the Palace of Torah offers a broad philosophical overview of the challenges the women's revolution poses to Orthodox Judaism, and Orthodox Judaism's response to those challenges. Ross, an associate professor of Jewish thought at Bar-Ilan University, suggests an alternative theological framework, which, she believes, will allow the Jewish legal system, known as Halacha, to accommodate feminism while maintaining continuity with tradition.

It is thought-provoking and sophisticated. The Torah was reveled to us at Sinai, but I would like to think that the general flow of Halakha has a guiding hand. While most of the feminist thinkers are willing to redefine Orthodoxy for the sake of feminism, Ross is not willing to do so.

It ends with the death of Mosesjust before the people of Israel cross to the promised land of Canaan. Traditionally ascribed to Moses himself, modern scholarship sees the book as initially a product of the Babylonian exile 6th century BCEfrom earlier written and oral traditions, with final revisions in the Persian post-exilic period 5th century BCE.

He lays the guilt at the feet of the perpetrators. All in all, here is a Haggadah very different from any other. The unique contribution of Ross's theological model of cumulativism is I simply cannot say enough positive things about it.

Rather, they require proper study and contemplation to fully grasp what Rabbi Berkovits is trying to convey on a much larger spiritual and halachic canvas.

Eliezer Berkovits were never sufficiently recognized by the mainstream Orthodox world and its leadership, which often snubbed, attacked, or simply ignored him.

In exposing the largely androcentric thrust of the rabbinic tradition and Expanding the Palace of Torah book biblical grounding, she sees this critique as posing a potential threat to the theological heart of traditional Judaism — the belief in divine revelation.

I may have not always used the right wording, but to be fair I am a math major after all. I never saw it that way.

At this point we need to accept this choice, but it was a choice we as a people made, not an overbearing arrangement. Typically, feminism's observation that the earliest records of revelation reflect the biases of their male transcribers leads feminists to devalue the records of revelation in their received form.Expanding the Palace of Torah: Orthodoxy and Feminism (review) The present book is an outgrowth of those two papers.
