Daughters of Sarah: Anthology of Jewish Women Writing in French

Translated into English. This book doesn't just fill a niche, it opens up a new perspective on the relations among Jewishness, gender and modernity in Europe. It will certainly spark new and creative thinking by anyone wise or lucky enough to dip into its contents. The writings are made all the more valuable by an excellent introduction that provides a context for the history of Jews and women in France as well as the position of women with the Jewish tradition.
