Overview

Feeding Women of the Bible cookbook features a short compelling narrative of twenty female biblical heroines from the Hebrew bible, paired with two healthy plant-based kosher pareve recipes inspired by the character’s experience.

You learn about these extraordinary women through:

  • Their Stories: a concise summary of the female biblical character’s narrative
  • Verses: key quotations from the Hebrew Bible relating to the biblical character’s narrative; all quotations are from The Hebrew Bible: A Translation and Commentary by Robert Alter
  • Themes: essential emotional, mental, physical, social themes that define the heroine’s narrative or role
  • Midrash: a modern commentary, uplifting the voice of the biblical heroine without attempting to neutralise their imperfections, flaws or struggles
  • Prompts: meaningful questions arising from her story, to inspire further reflection for women today
  • Food Offerings: two plant-based recipes developed to honour the biblical heroines

This is a community cookbook by Kenden Alfond and is the co-creation of 40 Jewish women. The twenty biblical narratives are contributed by Rabbis, Rabbinical students, Jewish teachers and emerging thought leaders. The forty-one plant-based recipes were developed by professional chefs, homecooks who are elementary school students, and great-grandmothers.
