Tuesdays, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
6 sessions, October 27 – November 24
Online Class offered in partnership with Hebrew College’s Open Circle
In this class we’ll explore the books of Ruth, Esther and Song of Songs – all biblical books where the women featured—either as leading character, or as one of the leading pair—and where women’s perspectives, roles and capacities are central to our understanding. These are also books which deeply explore how societies can transform and grow—often with women as the catalysts for change. No matter what gender we identify as, all of us can learn from these books about how to bring about personal, spiritual and social transformation. Using a variety of commentaries and approaches, we’ll delve into these literary and spiritual gems of biblical writing and see how they relate to our lives and experiences today.
This class qualifies for the “Bible, Rabbinics, and Philosophy” category of the Chochmat Lev, A Learned Heart Certificate.
