#MeToo in the Bible: Gender Imbalances in Ancient Judaism with Nechama Goldman Barash & Elie Jesner

From the Garden of Eden to the court of Queen Esther, biblical women are often subjugated and objectified. In our explorations, we will pose difficult questions about the origins, and the perpetuation, of gender imbalance in attitude and in deed. We will consider the current situation and possible avenues for repair. 

This session will be taught in memory of our friend and teacher, Maureen Kendler z”l

*Please note that Judy Klitsner will be unable to teach this session, but we are delighted to welcome the brilliant Nechama Goldman Barash in her place. 

Nechama is an Orthodox Jewish feminist who has been studying and teaching Jewish rabbinic and halakhic texts for years.

Nechama teaches Rabbinic Literature, Women and Judaism, Medical Ethics, Prophets and Bible at Pardes. She made aliyah from Philadelphia over 20 years ago after graduating from Stern College. She studied for three years in Matan’s Advanced Talmud Institute and finished a master’s degree in Talmud at Bar-Ilan University, with a thesis on the Beautiful Captive Woman in the Eyes of Chazal. She teaches at a variety of Israeli institutions and is also a graduate of Nishmat’s Yoetzet Halacha program
