Extract: This issue of Nashim, under the consulting editorship of Lesleigh Cushin Stahlberg, addresses the branch of feminist biblical studies that concerns reception history. The issue includes an Introduction from Stahlberg; five principal essays; an essay on Hannah Semer, the “first lady of Israeli journalism”; an additional short essay by Judith Margolis about the very beautiful, biblically inspired work of American feminist visual artist Carol Hamoy; and eight book reviews. In this review, given the usual constraints of space and time, I am only going to focus on the Introduction and five main essays.
