“Did You Hear What Happened to Dina?”: Responses to Abuse in the Torah + Today

Hosted By: SVIVAH


The Biblical story of the assault of Dina and its violent aftermath makes for difficult reading. Many of us have been impacted by cases of abuse – personally and communally. In our upcoming HerTorah session victim advocate and researcher Dr. Guila Benchimol and scholar/advocate Rabbi Mira Wasserman will teach this difficult text, offering us a greater understanding of the survivor experience and exploring how communities can respond to cases of gender-based violence.

SVIVAH

SVIVAH’s mission is to empower, strengthen, and nourish Jewish women* through community. SVIVAH is a multigenerational, diverse, powerful collective of Jewish women* dedicated to inspiring, motivating, and celebrating life in sisterhood. In Hebrew, svivah means “to surround her'' and that is precisely our goal. We connect women to each other, to cross-generational wisdom, to Jewish learning, and to the resources we need, in an inclusive, women*-only space. We do this by curating Jewish faith experiences with women at the center, by producing wide-ranging programming, and by amplifying and partnering with organizations in line with our values. (*SVIVAH defines “Jewish woman” as anyone wishing to be included in a circle of Jewish women.)
