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.

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.)
