Writer Specializing in Modern Judaism and Women's Issues

Blu Greenberg is an American writer specializing in Modern Judaism and women's issues. She is the author of "On Women and Judaism: A View from Tradition" (1981) and "Black Bread: Poems, After the Holocaust" (1994).

Greenberg is active in the movement to bridge Judaism and feminism. In 1997 and 1998, she chaired the first and second International Conference on Feminism, and is co-founder and first president of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance. She has also tried to build bridges between women of different faiths by helping to set up "Women of Faith," and by her involvement in the "Dialogue Project," which seeks to unite Jewish and Palestinian women. She lectures widely at universities and to Jewish communities in the United States and elsewhere.

She received the Woman Who Made A Difference award on January 26, 2000 from the American Jewish Congress Commission for Women's Equality during a ceremony at the Israeli Knesset in Jerusalem.
