MORE Subversive Sisters: Getting to Know MORE of the Women of Tanakh (Hebrew Bible)
Led by Dana Baruch
50 years ago, almost all teachings about the women found in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) came to us through the lenses of men–rabbis, teachers and scholars. It wasn’t until about 50 years ago that this began to shift. In 1972 the first female rabbi was ordained in the U.S., and around this same time, Jewish academic feminism was beginning to come into its own. Over the past several decades, our remarkable Biblical female characters have begun to speak to us in perhaps new and more rounded ways. This course utilizes texts from the Tanakh, along with commentary exclusively written by women, in an effort to learn new messages–powerful, remarkable and sometimes subversive ones–from the Women in Tanakh. Together, we will explore and discover, perhaps for the very first time, who these ancient women were and what they have to teach us in 2021!
This module meets on February 1, 8, 15, 22.
