Jewish Law in an Egalitarian Age: Women and Kaddish, Tefillin, Megilla Reading, Hair Covering, and more

Hosted By: Pardes

In this course, we will explore and discuss women’s role in ritual practice, both personal and communal, through the study of classical and contemporary Jewish legal texts. Questions of custom vs. law, societal and historical influences, and future development and change will be addressed. We will study the topics of women reciting mourner’s kaddish, women reading megillah, women wearing tefillin, and women covering their heads. The course will focus on textual analysis and interpretation. All sources are provided in both Hebrew and English and the course is open to all levels and genders.
