Halakhic Creativity and the Problem of Jewish Marriage (with Rachel Adler)

February 13, 2014 $10.00

Second in a series of public events in honor of the late Rabbi David Hartman. Classic halakha prescribes a model of marriage in which the woman is unilaterally acquired by the man and is, hence, unable to free herself should she wish to end the marriage. Drawing from her landmark book “Engendering Judaism,” rabbi Rachel Adler, a leading Jewish feminist theologian and scholar of Jewish law, will discuss how and why Jewish law should accomodate a more egalitarian vision of marital relationships and traditions.

Students free with valid ID.
