Purim HerTorah: Women and Power

Hosted By: SVIVAH

Explore the Purim megillah through a lens of “Women* + Power” – how we navigate power, how women’s power is perceived by others, how women perceive women in power. Rabba Wendy Amsellem will unpack “Esther and the Liability of Women*s Likeability”, Zoe Fertik will explore “speaking truth to power” in the megillah, and Tali Farhadian Weinstein – former federal and state prosecutor and Iranian refugee – will share her own experiences with power.

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.)
