Writing the Feminist Commentary to the Talmud: "The Talmud's Women in Law and Narrative"

Judith Hauptman is the E. Billi Ivry Professor of Talmud and Rabbinic Culture at The Jewish Theological Seminary. Dr. Hauptman's scholarly research focuses on two areas. The first is unraveling the mystery of how the Talmud came into being, i.e., how the many strands of rabbinic teachings coalesced into one coherent document. Her second area of research involves investigating women's roles in Judaic thought, bringing an evaluation of the social and ethical norms of the rabbinic period into dialogue with contemporary issues. Dr. Hauptman received a degree in Talmud from the Seminary College of Jewish Studies at JTS (now Albert A. List College of Jewish Studies) and a degree in Economics from Barnard College, and earned an MA and a PhD in Talmud from JTS. In May 2003, she was ordained as a rabbi by the Academy for Jewish Religion.
Dr. Hauptman is the keynote speaker for a workshop devoted to recent and ongoing feminist commentary on the Babylonian Talmud.
