Dr. Rachel Adler
Rachel Adler is associate professor of Modern Jewish Thought and Judaism and Gender at the School of Religion, University of Southern Californiamarker and the Hebrew Union College Rabbinical School at the Los Angeles campus. Adler was one of the first theologians to integrate feminist perspectives and concerns into Jewish texts and the renewal of Jewish law and ethics.

Adler received a PhD from the University of Southern California in 1997. She is the author of many articles that have appeared in Blackwell's Companion to Feminist Philosophy, Beginning Anew: A Woman's Companion to the High Holy Days, Contemporary Jewish Religious Thought, Lifecycles, The Jewish Condition, and On Being a Jewish Feminist.

She was awarded the 2000 Tuttleman Foundation Book Award of Gratz College and the 1999 National Jewish Book Award for Jewish Thought by the Jewish Book Council.

In 1971, she published an article entitled "The Jew Who Wasn't There: Halakha and the Jewish Woman" in Davka magazine. This article was considered by historian Paula Hyman as one of the founding influences of the Jewish feminist movement. In 1992, she began a women's Talmud class in her home, teaching the text (traditionally forbidden to women) in its original Hebrew and Aramaic. This created the first rigorous Talmud study opportunity for lay women outside of New York and Israel.

Originally an Orthodox Jew, Adler made her spiritual home in the Reform movement.
