Shavuot HerTorah: How Are We Listening? Responding to Women*s Voices in the Book of Ruth + Today
Hosted By: SVIVAH
As you walk into Shavuot, take a moment to remember how each one of us, each one of our unique voices – and each of our unique experiences – matter in community, deserving to be seen, to be heard, deserving to be validated, respected, and acknowledged. Examine the Book of Ruth as a blueprint for the society we want to live in and how this biblical example of society — one where marginalized voices are heard — holds up today. Rabbi Sarah Mulhern, Avigayil Halperin, and R’ Aliza Sperling will look to the text of Megillat Ruth for examples of how individuals and society address voices that are not always centered. They will be joined by Hadar Schwartz, PhD, a trauma-informed clinician who will offer her expert framing, relating our learning to our communal experiences today.
