2006 National Jewish Book Award, Modern Jewish Thought Long the object of curiosity, admiration, and gossip, rabbis' wives have rarely been viewed seriously as American Jewish religious and communal leaders. We know a great deal about the important role played by rabbis in building American Jewish life in this country, but not much about the role that their wives played. The Rabbi’s Wife redresses that imbalance by highlighting the unique contributions of rebbetzins to the development of American Jewry. Tracing the careers of rebbetzins from the beginning of the twentieth century until the present, Shuly Rubin Schwartz chronicles the evolution of the role from a few individual rabbis' wives who emerged as leaders to a cohort who worked together on behalf of American Judaism. The Rabbi’s Wife reveals the ways these women succeeded in both building crucial leadership roles for themselves and becoming an important force in shaping Jewish life in America.

Yakar L'Mordecai commemorates forty years of Rabbi Waxman's service to Temple Israel of Great Neck; it was initiated by his grateful congregants and carried through by his colleagues and friends. It mirrors his interests in and contributions to Jewish scholarship and thought, and is divided into four sections, each pertaining to an area in which Rabbi Waxman has been involved. Part I is a retrospective of Rabbi Waxman's career in the rabbinate and in Jewish scholarship; Part II, on Jewish thought, contains articles which reflect the honoree's broad knowledge of the topic, from Biblical studies to contemporary theology. Part III deals with Jewish-Christian relations, as well as the position of Jews in various parts of the world in their relations with the surrounding cultures, and Part IV with American Judaism. Along with the many other contributions, this volume contains articles by Rabbi Waxman's later father and wife and one by his son, Rabbi Jonathan Waxman.

Although women constitute half of the Jewish population and have always played essential roles in ensuring Jewish continuity and the preservation of Jewish beliefs and values, only recently have their contributions and achievements received sustained scholarly attention. Scholars have begun to investigate Jewish women’s domestic, economic, intellectual, spiritual, and creative roles in Jewish life from biblical times to the present. Yet little of this important work has filtered down beyond specialists in their respective academic fields. Women and Judaism brings the broad new insights they have uncovered to the world. Women and Judaism communicates this research to a wider public of students and educated readers outside of the academy by presenting accessible and engaging chapters written by key senior scholars that introduce the reader to different aspects of women and Judaism. The contributors discuss feminist approaches to Jewish law and Torah study, the spirituality of Eastern European Jewish women, Jewish women in American literature, and many other issues. Contributors: Nehama Aschkenasy, Judith R. Baskin, Sylvia Barack Fishman, Harriet Pass Freidenreich, Esther Fuchs, Judith Hauptman, Sara R. Horowitz, Renée Levine, Pamela S. Nadell, and Dvora Weisberg.
