Non-Israelite Women Challenging Gender Roles in the Bible

When we think about women in the Bible, who are the people that come to mind and what are the roles that these women usually fulfill? When we dig a little bit deeper, we discover that within our sacred texts there is a category of non-Israelite women who appear to challenge some of our regularly held stereotypes about how women behave and what was expected of them.

In this course we will consider the place of women in the Bible and then we will do an in depth study of a number of non-Israelite women, reading both texts from the TaNaCh and those from the Midrash to see the way that these women challenged the gender roles which we usually encounter.

Rabbi Danny is looking forward to learning with you.
