Rachel Adler has written a pioneering work on what it means to "engender" Jewish tradition, that is, how women's full inclusion can and must transform our understanding and practice of Jewish law, prayer, sexuality, and marriage. Engendering Judaism challenges both mainstream Judaism and feminist dogma, and speaks across the movements as well as to Christian theologians and feminists. It presents a theology and ethics for Judaism that men and women recreate and renew together as equals. Adler assesses the impact of gender and sexuality on Judaism's classic texts. She brings this assessment to bear on three central areas of Jewish thought and practice; law, liturgy, and the ethics of sexuality and relationship
