    Overview

    Summary
    "Born at the dawn of the twentieth century in a poor Jewish neighborhood in Berlin, Regina Jonas became the first ordained woman rabbi in the history of Judaism.

    Her brutal death at the hands of the Nazis at Auschwitz in 1944 might have forever obscured her compelling story if a collection of her personal documents had not been discovered after the collapse of the Berlin Wall.

    Now author, Judiac scholar, and feminist Elisa Klapheck has written the biography of this exceptional and courageous woman after years of studying Jonas's papers and recreating her life story."
