Get to know the story of Judith, the overlooked Hanukkah heroine. In this special Hanukkah class with My Jewish Learning, teacher and author Sandra E. Rapoport will present her original lecture, “Judith: Hanukkah Heroine Excluded from the Hebrew Bible.”
Who was Judith? Why is Judith’s image carved into centuries of Chanukah menorahs, and also painted on the ceiling of the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel? What did Judith do that was heroic, and why is her story excluded from the Hebrew Bible?
