Her first book, Standing Again at Sinai: Judaism from a Feminist Perspective (1990), challenged and changed the way Jews think about gender, revelation, community, and God. The co-founder and co-editor of The Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion, she is the author of The Coming of Lilith: Essays on Feminism, Judaism, and Sexual Ethics, 1972–2003 (2005). Plaskow retired as Professor of Religious Studies at Manhattan College in 2012.
