Experience the Talmud in a fresh way with recipes and stories that nourish the body and spirit.

Feeding the Women of the Talmud, Feeding Ourselves produces true food for thought by retelling the stories of sixty-nine women in the Talmud and honoring them with vegan or plant-based recipes. Enjoy sixty-nine delicious, balanced recipes ideal for family meals, entertaining, and healthy snacks. Each recipe is accompanied by stunning photography and meditations on stories of women in the Talmud that draw new meaning from the text.

This community cookbook is the co-creation of 129 Jewish women from around the world. Sixty rabbis, rabbinical students, Jewish teachers, and emerging thought leaders contributed to the Talmudic narratives, and sixty female professional chefs and passionate home cooks contributed to the recipes. The addition of this female-focused point of view to these women's Talmudic stories-which were recorded and edited by men-is a bright and encouraging testament to a modern generation of women engaging in Jewish learning.

"Kenden Alfond has created a vibrant community of Jewish women scholars, vegan chefs, and now readers. I savored the rich and relevant stories of 69 women in the Talmud and will absolutely sample the delicious, accompanying recipes. You'll want to press this gem into the hands of your daughter, mother, sister, or best friend. A true feast for the body and soul." -Michelle Brafman, author of Washing the Dead

"Introducing us to little known Talmudic stories, this book invites us to hear and taste the wisdom of women in ways that feed our bodies and our souls." -Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, author of Regina Persisted, Judy Led the Way, and Sally Opened Doors
