Mikdash and Monarchy - Unified & Divided:
Sefer Melachim Alef

We will highlight structure, themes and literary devices as we learn of the national and religious struggles with Divine and human monarchy presented by the prophets. Come join in our historical and textual journey as we address how a magnificent unified kingdom became divided and explore religious challenges in the aftermath of disunity - for then and now. For women. In English.

Widows, Witches & Wayward Women
Uncovering Her-story

We will investigate stories in Tanach which describe women living on the fringe of society: Widows, Witches & Wayward Women, paying careful attention to words and phrases. Our understanding of these narratives will be enhanced through the study of both Medieval & Modern Commentaries; all in an attempt to better comprehend and appreciate these women's thoughts and actions, cognizant of the time period and milieu, in which they lived.

For women. In English.

A Day in the Life of a Prophet/ess
A glimpse into their public & private lives

Turning prophets and prophecy inside-out. Our text-based study of Nakh will investigate the complex and evolving role of the Prophet/ess in Ancient Israel in both the public and private domains. We will spotlight numerous Neviim (such as Shmuel, Devorah, Natan, Huldah, Yeshayahu, Yirmiyahu & Yechezkel) to better understand the intensity of their role, the self-sacrifice demanded and their significant impact on the lives of the King and the nation.
