Giving Her a Voice: Listening to and Learning from Remarkable Women of the Bible

Saturdays,10:30 am–12:00 pm
with Cantor Star Trompeter
Compelling women who have helped shape the narrative of the Jewish people are embedded throughout the Torah.  However, the text itself often does not capture the true complexities of these dynamic women.  Similar to last year’s six session course, we will focus on the ways in which women are portrayed in the text, as well as alternative ways to interpret the text. Rather than focusing on the Torah portion of the week, we will explore specific biblical women who have made a significant impact through the eyes of various commentators, both traditional and contemporary, as well through the Women’s Torah Commentary.  
April 29:  Sarah
