Documenting the life story, inspiring personality, and scholarship of Nehama Leibowitz, a recipient of the Israel Prize in Education, this biography discusses her strong views on issues such as Zionism, humanism, and feminism, as well as the influences that shaped her. The book also examines her pioneering approach to the study of the Hebrew Bible and the commentaries that forever changed the face of Jewish Bible study, as well as her acceptance as a prominent Torah scholar despite her gender and the future of her work in light of recent scholarship. Dozens of black-and-white photographs help tell the story of a brilliant teacher, an erudite scholar, and a forthright, warm, and humorous individual who left her mark on tens of thousands of people around the world.
