HerTorah: Purim & #MeToo: Shining Light on Violence Against Women in the Megillah

Hosted By: SVIVAH

Featuring Dr. Guila Benchimol + Rabbi Aviva Richman; Offered in partnership with SRE Network+ JCADA

Purim is a joyful, fun holiday, but Megillat Esther contains dark tales of women’s victimization that are hard to ignore. As we think about the lessons of #metoo, how can Torah learning that acknowledges and centers the experience of women in the megillah help us respond better to violence against women today?

HerTorah gathers together a diverse community of Jewish women to connect over our shared heritage, explore our collective wisdom, and elevate our communal experience in learning with and from one another.

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.)
