A unique, inspiring, and vibrant portrait of sixty women exploring how they blend their faith and/or sense of Jewishness in their lives, their families, their expectations, and their commitments.

This photo essay of 60 Jewish American women of all ages and backgrounds--wealthy, on welfare, orthodox, assimilated, in prison, in banking, in government--forms a tapestry of connections among a most diverse group. Those interviewed include a veterinarian in Montgomery, Alabama, the granddaughter of a black Jewish slave in New York, a Holocaust survivor and her daughter, and a Jew by choice. The authors show how these women balance two competing forces--change and tradition--as they combine feminism with Judaism. Irrespective of their wide cultural, religious, and social differences, they all express an involvement in collective Jewish conscience while at the same time showing that Judaism is not a monolithic structure. The fine photos and evocative text provide an "invisible thread" of its own. Of value to general and special collections.
