If you’re anything like me, you want to know the real history your teachers’ teachers kept from y’all.
So here is a great summary of a book discussing the good, the bad, the ugly and especially the surprising Halachic customs. Written with special interest in the Ezras Nashim experience of course. Did you know women would do Sandaka’us (I did)? Divorce was insufficiently stigmatized? About Zimun of women and men (I should really write about that topic sometime)? The reason Yibbum was first discouraged? And more.
