Session 1: More than Biblical Housewives- the Exceptional Women of Genesis

Following Simchat Torah, it’s time to start reading again the Book of Genesis. In this text study class, we will focus on the lives, character, and actions of our early Biblical Women (including Lilith and Eve) and our Jewish Matriarchs – Sarah, Rebekah, Leah and Rachel. Come discuss and retell some of the familiar stories of Genesis with a focus on our heroines. We will use our new The Torah: A Modern Commentary Chumashim, and also take a look at The Torah: A Women’s Commentary. Everyone is invited: both women and men are encouraged to study and learn together.
