Our session will explore the lives of a number of remarkable women in the Bible – Devorah, Esther, Ruth, Rahab, Yael and so many more. By applying up-to-date scholarship to the biblical text, a deeper understanding of their vital role in the destiny of the Jewish People will be examined.
All are welcome. Knowledge of Hebrew is not required.
