Blu Greenberg (born 1936) is an American writer specializing in Modern Orthodox 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 the gulf between Orthodox Judaism and feminism. In 1997 and 1998, she chaired the first and second International Conference on Feminism and Orthodoxy, 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.[1]

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.[2]

Greenberg has an MA in clinical psychology from the City University of New York, and an MS in Jewish history from Yeshiva University.[3] She is married to Rabbi Irving Greenberg, who is also a well-known author and professor.
