A virtual event presentation by Rabbi Dr. Rachel Sabath Beit-Halachmi – co-hosted by Temple Emanuel.
ABOUT THE EVENT:
This session will focus on two Talmudic stories about rabbinic power and gender. They share two elements that we’ll study closely: the role of the body and the emotion of anger. We’ll ask: How are each portrayed in each of the Talmudic narratives and how do we understand them and manage them in today’s Jewish world?
