Blessings for Times and Seasons: Marcia Falk‘s Feminist Berakhot

Marcia Falk is a Jewish poet, scholar, and translator with a deep love for liturgical texts – particularly the berakhot or blessings at the heart of Jewish prayer – and a passion for their continuing life in Jewish contexts far removed from the ancient communities that originated these forms. This article provides an introduction to Falk‘s work and to broader questions of feminist recasting of traditional liturgical forms.
