Toratah/Her Torah: Women Rabbis Revealing the Goddess in Torah
Hosted By: Kolot Mayim Reform Temple
Rabbi Gila Caine, will explore how throughout the millennia, rabbinic tradition, and especially written tradition, was written from within a man-focused and experienced perspective. Documented Torah reading was mostly seen through the eyes and bodies of men. Now, after around half a century of ordaining women, we have amassed a growing corpus of documented writing flowing from within woman’s experiences and interpretations of Torah and life. In this talk, Rabbi Caine will read a few Torah commentaries written by (women) rabbis from North America and Israel, as examples of weaving together rabbinic and women’s experience into something new. This event is part of a 6-part series of talks on the theme of Building Bridges: Celebrating Diversity in Jewish Life. The community is invited to listen and learn from Indigenous, Black, Asian, feminist and differently gendered and differently abled advocates who work tirelessly to make our world a better place.
