The Unknown Women of the Bible. Talmud and Midrash
On four Sundays, April 14th, 21st, 28th, and May 5th, Rabbi Daniel and our next Adult Education Class will explore some lesser-known Jewish heroines, as we look at “the Unknown Women of the Bible, Talmud, and Midrash.”
In our April classes, we’ll look at three very different women –Judith, a community leader and war hero, Bruriah, the most noted female sage of the Talmud, and Serach bat Asher, a musician whom the Midrash claims lived through the whole period of slavery in Egypt.
What do our sources say about these women? Why have they been forgotten? And why is it so important today that we reclaim them?
In our final class, the students will get to choose between some somewhat better-known women of the Bible, all of whom have lesser-known sides: Sarah, Miriam, Tamar, Eve and Lilith, Hannah, Dinah, and Esther. All classes will run from 11a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and they are free and open to the public. Come enjoy this fascinating, hidden side of our tradition!
