    • I've long been a fan of Ms. Ragen's fiction, so I was interested in how she would cast her characters in a play. The Women's Minyan was faithful to her past work, yet it was difficult to build the empathy that one normally does with Ms. Ragen's protagonists. A play, however, doesn't build with the same time materials as fiction, and in that respect, the pace was perfect. I appreciated the effort to expose some of the extremes that exist in ultra-Orthodoxy. The first instinct a Jewish reader migh [...]


    • Predictable plot, typical anti-religious establishment stuff you expect from the author (if you've read any of her other works), and the writing for most of it was fairly weak - except for Act 2. Act 2 was compelling and well-written. Act 2 was a page turner. If only the whole play was as strong as Act 2, the play would've really been something. Instead, it largely fell flat.

    • Very deep and important to read for all women of faith. A one time sitting reading. Encompasses the general problems of abuse and the hidden problems of abuse.



    • I found Women's Minyan to be an emotional and powerful play that was impossible to put down once I started reading it. Based upon a true story, it covers a type of abuse and repression that is seldom discussed. This play makes a very strong statement about the injustices that can occur against women in insular religious groups. Although set in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Jerusalem, the story could have also been occurred in any other ultra-religious, close-knit, patriarchal community. [...]


    • I don't love reading plays, but this is a good one-- about an Orthodox Jewish woman who has been abused by her husband, and how she is treated by the rest of the community. Most alarming is how deeply entrenched is the belief that the woman is at fault, and how much effort goes into protecting the man.


    • An excellent thought experiment on what would happen if women in Orthodox Judaism (and other religions with restrictive gender roles) would actually listen to each other. Dramatically written and staged.


    • Interesting bookI guess I misunderstood when I read about this book. I thought it was a novel. At first, it was hard to get into reading it but after a bit, it was good. I found it interesting to learn what really goes on behind closed doors of Orthodox Jewish women.


    • Novelist Naomi Ragen's (The Sacrifice of Tamar, Jephte's Daughter) play inspired by the true story of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman in Jerusalem who was forcibly separated from her twelve children by a vengeful ex-husband and a complacent and corrupt social and judicial system.


    • TriteThe author takes the most EXTREME case of orthodox Judaism and makes it into a play. She misleads the readers into believing all orthodox women and men live with hypocrisy and beating. She must be a very bitter, stupid woman.



    • I normally love Naomi Ragen's writing. This seemed forced. It was an interesting topic, though kind of predictable.


    • I'm not sure that I like reading a play. Subject matter interested me, but hard to evoke the emotion in the reading of this.
