“Women* Writing Torah” Series: Lot’s Wife – A Feminist Re-Telling

Hosted By: SVIVAH

SVIVAH’s HerTorah: “Women* Writing Torah” Series: Lot’s Wife – A Feminist Re-Telling

Our new HerTorah series is here! “Women* Writing Torah” – an incredible series showcasing how women*s perspectives can expand and deepen the experience of Torah for everyone. We’re kicking off the series with author + midrashist Dr. Michal Lemberger — she’s teaching the story of “Lot’s Wife – A Feminist Retelling.”

We’re also thrilled to welcome Dr. Judith Rosenbaum, CEO of the Jewish Women’s Archive.

*As always, SVIVAH welcomes anyone wishing to be included in a circle of Jewish women. Learners of all backgrounds are most welcomed. Please come? The conversation is incomplete without you around the table.

Host

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.)
