One Hundred Philistine Foreskins

One Hundred Philistine Foreskins centers on the life of Temima Ba'alatOv, known also as Ima Temima, or Mother Temima, a charismatic woman rabbi of extraordinary spiritual power and learning, and an utterly original interpreter of the Hebrew Bible. Temima is revered as a guru with prophetic, even messianic powersone who dares to raise her womans naked voice even in the face of extreme hostility by the traditional establishment. Moving between two worldsTemima as a child in Brooklyn and Temima as an adult in Jerusalemthe story reveals the forces that shaped her, including the early loss of her mother, her spiritual and intellectual awakening, her complex relationship with her father, a ritual slaughterer, her forced marriage, her ascent to Israel, and her intense romantic involvements with charismatic men who launch her toward her destiny as a renowned woman leader in Israel. True to Reichs voice as a satirist of humanity's darker inclinations, the story is rooted in contemporary times, revealing the extreme and ecstatic expressions of religion, as well as the power of religion and religious authorities to use and abuse the faithful, both spiritually and physically, with life-altering and crushing consequences. Cynthia Ozick said of Tova Reich that her verbal blade is amazingly, ingeniously, startlingly, all-consumingly, all-encompassingly, deservedly, and brilliantly savage. This has never been more true than in One Hundred Philistine Foreskins, a work of literature sure to be hailed as an immensely authoritative and fearlessly bold tour-de-force.
