Join us for an evening of study and conversation where we will explore the meaning of the project that seeks to expand our sacred texts. And in marking the publication of the English volume of “Dirshuni,” the first-ever English edition of a historic collection of midrashim composed by Israeli women, which has been long-anticipated by multiple American audiences including synagogues, rabbinical seminaries, adult learning programs, Jewish educators and scholars of gender and religion.
Using the classical forms developed by the ancient rabbis, the contributors express their religious and moral thought and experience through innovative interpretations of scripture. The women writers, from all denominations and beyond, of all political stripes and ethnic backgrounds, contribute their Torah to fill the missing half of the sacred Jewish bookshelf.
This book reflects dramatic changes in the agency of women in the world of religious writings.+ More... - Less...
