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?
