Summary
"In this collection, Judaic scholar Vanessa Ochs brings the legends of the biblical matriarchs to new life using her own form of midrash, a creative but scholarly reinterpretation of sacred works that puts flesh and bones on the original. Finding her own, distinctly female voice in this traditional art, Ochs retells the incredible stories of the biblical matriarchs, filling in the gaps and answering some of the key questions left behind by the original text." "For each of the women in Sarah Laughed, the author first translates the Hebrew passages in which the woman appears and then presents an eloquent new rendition of the story, offering a creative way to connect to these heroines, making their trials and triumphs relevant for women today."--Jacket
Summary
The legends of biblical matriarchs are revealed as inspiring role models for women today, each story accompanied by real-life rituals that the readers can perform to gain insight into such topics as finding inner wisdom and being a good friend
