The Talmud, the book of Jewish law, is one of the most challenging religious texts in the world. But it is being read in ever larger numbers, partly thanks to digital tools that make it easier to grasp, and growing interest from women - who see no reason why men should have it to themselves.

Let me begin this review by affirming that I am NOT Orthodox, and have no intentions of ever becoming such. But I AM open-minded (at least I like to think so) so I read this book on the recommendation of a Lubavitcher rebbetzin whom I personally admire as a strong and intelligent Jewish woman.

"To Be A Jewish Woman" is an introduction to traditionally observant Judaism, with emphasis on how the religious and social customs apply to women. It's not a how-to book, but rather an encyclopaedia of `why'? Why do men and women sit separately at synagogues? Why are certain mitzvoth gender-specific? Why do married women immerse in the mikvah after menstruation? Some of the answers can be offensive from a modern and secular perspective, but all of them provoke serious thought.

Dr. Lisa Aiken's approach to the subject takes no prisoners. She warns against the quick spiritual fixes that are in abundance these days and advises, "If (a woman's) goal is to make unencumbered choices about her body, her material wants, and how she spends her time and energies, then she will not find satisfaction in observant Judaism." She argues that what the secular world applauds is rarely compatible with what traditional Judaism values in both men and women. But once the disclaimers are out of the way, Dr. Aiken demonstrates that women have been historically revered and even deferred to throughout Jewish history. Their assigned roles are different and in most cases less public than those of men, but no less equal or important.

"To Be A Jewish Woman" did not persuade me to put away my tallit or resign my membership in a Conservative synagogue. But it did make me appreciate the rewards that my Orthodox sisters enjoy in exchange for their adherence to traditional values.

I really love this book. I bought a second copy because I lost my first one. It is a one of a kind book, and the author really goes into detail about living a Torah Observant Lifestyle. So if you are returning to Judaism or you are a Convert looking for authentic advice on living observantly this is THE book for women. The only other book that I have found as helpful is Blu Greenberg's "How to Run a Traditional Jewish Household".

When I began exploring Judaism, having grown up as a secular Jew, I had issues with what I thought were Judaism's conceptions of Jewish women. As an independent, educated and vocal person, I was nervous about entering into a society that I thought wouldn't support the kind of woman I am. Boy, was I wrong. Thanks to this wonderful book, I was able to learn how Judaism REALLY approaches women.

This book gave me the "permission" to continue on my quest to live a full Jewish life, knowing that women are respected and even revered in Judaism, and that all the traits of power and strength that I had, were a big thumbs up in Judaism, not the opposite.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about women in Judaism, to any woman who is looking to love Judaism and fully join her people.

Do yourself a favor - read this book.
