Description

The Jewish religion possesses a virtually uninterrupted record of scripture and commentary dating back to 1000 BCE. In Judaism and Disability, Judith Z. Abrams accesses this unique Judaic library to document changing attitudes toward people with disabilities. As Abrams examines the Tanach, the Hebrew acronym for the Jewish Bible, including passages from the Torah, Prophets, and Writings, and subsequent commentaries up to and through the Bavli, the Talmud of Babylonia written between the fifth and seventh centuries CE, she traces the transition of community attitudes toward disability from disdain to acceptance.
