In 2006, Dr. Lehman was invited by Professor Tal Ilan of the Freie Universität in Berlin to participate in the scholarly production of a feminist commentary to the Talmud. She will be working on Tractate Yoma. This is a groundbreaking endeavor because it is the first time that scholars in the field of Talmudic literature have gathered together to apply an array of feminist approaches to the texts of the Talmud. It is also the first time since WWII that significant scholarship in the field of Talmud is being spearheaded and funded by a German academic institution. Professor Judith Hauptman of the Talmud department at JTS is also contributing to this scholarly endeavor.
