Tales of the Neighborhood

University of California Press

The four previous chapters were generated in response to a number of tales from Leviticus Rabbah in which women neighbors appear to have more or less central functions. One of the main purposes of this research has been to read these ancient texts in the light of contemporary theoretical thinking so that the texts themselves may become more accessible for a diversity of readers. More substantially, in each chapter, different bundles of social relationships have been brought together and unwrapped, and various theoretical issues have been highlighted, according to the character of the texts. Texts on women neighbors in the Leviticus Rabbah expose the literary and intellectual qualities of the tales that complicate ambiguity into a richly multivocal performance on gender and territory.

Keywords:   Leviticus Rabbah, theoretical issues, territory, ambiguity, gender
