The Madwoman in the Rabbi’s Attic: The Tale of Yalta the Shrew

Hosted By: American Jewish University

Why are shrews always so vicious? How did the ancient world view the differences between the male and female body? And what possessed Yalta to smash 400 bottles of her husband’s wine? This event brings the Talmudic tale of Yalta to life through the lens of world-renowned authors and thinkers such as Aristotle and Aelian, William Shakespeare and William Congreve, Washington Irving and Charles Dickens, and more.
