Longing for the Blessing

Midrashic Voices from Toldot

poems and prose by

Judith Sarah Schmidt

“Judith Schmidt’s bold and original poetic meditations on the Biblical stories in the Torah portion of Toldot will surprise you with their subtle psychological insights and inspire you with their fresh and spiritually mature midrashic interpolations. The book will change the way we read these stories forever; its imaginative poetic gifts will enlighten readers and also challenge them to make the Torah portion their own.” – Lawrence Besserman, Professor of English, Emeritus The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

“To enter Judith Sarah Schmidt’s stunningly profound and beautiful Longing for the Blessing, her reflections on the section of the Torah called Toldot, is to become intimate with words of Torah, dream images, the collected insights of over a thousand years of religious commentary, contemporary psychology and literature and personal memories. Through these words and images you enter into the soul of Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob and Esau, as well as of her great-grandfather Judah, and of Judith herself. Through these images you deeply understand and love them, their faith, their prayers, their struggles and triumphs. In their light, you see your own.”

– Rabbi Rachel Cowan
