In this Issue
Cofounded in 1998 by the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute at Brandeis University and the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, Nashim: A Journal of Jewish Women's Studies & Gender Issues provides an international, interdisciplinary academic forum the only one of its kind for the innovative work being done in the many areas of research that comprise the field of Jewish women's and gender studies. It regularly includes articles on literature, text studies, anthropology, theology, contemporary thought, sociology, the arts, and more. It aims to create communication channels within the Jewish women's and gender studies community, to bring the fruits of that community's work to a wider audience, and to enhance their educational, political, and cultural impact on the Jewish world and beyond. In addition, each issue of Nashim highlights the new voices that seek to redefine the place of women in the Jewish tradition and Jewish learning in ways that incorporate female creativity and spirituality.

Table of Contents
This issue’s cover illustration is taken from artist Susan Schwalb’s contribution to Women of the Book: Jewish Women Recording, Reflecting, Revisioning, an international collaborative art project by 54 secular and religious Jewish women artists. Each will paint her visual interpretation of one weekly Torah portion on a piece of kosher klaf (parchment). Inspired by the form and content of a traditional Sefer Torah (Torah scroll), the pieces will be sewn together to form an illustrated midrashic scroll.
