The Transformative Women of the High Holy Days with Anne Gordon

Open to women only.

In this course, we will investigate the women who are prominent in the liturgy of the High Holidays, using both the biblical and liturgical texts where their stories are found. We will explore the models of transformation they provide, from narratives of barrenness, prayer, and nationhood. Personalities under consideration include Sarah, Rachel, Chana, Avigayil and the mother of Sisera. Please bring a Tanakh with you.

Anne Gordon got her start teaching at Maimonides has since taught widely in Jerusalem and New York, including at Midreshet HaRova, Matan, Yeshiva University High School for Girls (Central), the Yeshivah of Flatbush High School, Stern College, and Drisha Institute. A native of Boston, she now lives in Jerusalem where she is the Deputy Editor of Ops & Blogs at The Times of Israel.
