Lilith's Ark

Full Product Description

This is an extraordinary collection of midrash written expressly for teenage girls. Not long after the world was created, Lilith, the first woman, was expelled from the Garden of Eden. She built an ark, a magic box, in which future biblical women could hide their most prized possessions. And so, Lilith's Ark became a place for women to share their own experiences of adolescence with future generations of girls...The women of Torah grew up at a time when gender roles were rigidly defined and girls were considered women at an early age. Still, the Torah hints that young biblical women faced challenges similar to those that teenagers encounter today: first loves, burgeoning identities, developing sexualities, and blossoming spirituality. Building on textual sources, Deborah Bodin Cohen has created a collection of midrashim about the teen years of 10 women in Genesis that will resonate with 21st-century readers. "Lilith's Ark" melds text, biblical commentaries, and historic details about the ancient world with the experiences of modern girls and women and the author's own imagination. This is a discussion guide for each story enriches the reading experience.This is a book that will speak across time to the anxieties and aspirations of today's growing girls.

Lilith's Ark by Deborah Bodin Cohen was published by Jewish Publication Society in August 2006. The ISBN for Lilith's Ark is 9780827608337.
