The role of women in Judaism has become a subject of intense interest - and distortion - in recent years. Many people pontificate about what the Talmud and the Rabbis say on the subject, and back their often misguided claims with quotes that are either misinterpreted or wrenched from their context.

Indeed, what does the Talmud say? And what is the true meaning of its sometimes allegorical, always succinct comments? These are the questions that Rabbi Doctor Aaron Glatt undertakes to answer in this anthology.

He collects a full range of the Talmud's halachic and aggadic statements about women in the Sedarim (Orders) of Zeraim and Moed, but that is not all.

This volume contains not only simply translations, but also full detailed explanations of the passages, drawn from centuries of Talmudic and Rabbinic literature. Often, the author leavens his anthologized commentary with his own original and enlightening observations.

The sum total is a book that will educate and fascinate. Most importantly, it presents Judaism's true perspective on the lofty and respected role of women in Judaism.

The Orthodox Union is proud to present this work, which will be a milestone, a major contribution to understanding of Torah, Talmud, and Halachah.
