ScholarStream Series - Torah Relationships

Loving Peace, One Person at a Time

Oct 20 2021, 8:00PM to 9:00PM in the Online / Live Stream.

ScholarStream: An Initiative of the RA, USCJ, JTS and Ziegler

Biblical stories can inform our understanding of our own relationships. The life lessons of our ancestors influence our personal, communal, and world values.

This week's session: 

When we study the Akeidah, the binding of Isaac, we often focus on the dynamics between Abraham, Isaac, and God. We rarely ask: where was Sarah? In this session, we will use traditional sources and gender theory to open up questions of gender, community, and parenting. Through our questioning, we will remember Sarah's story and re-member Sarah, in all her complexities, as a full part of our tradition.f a character who is to be celebrated for his actions, and what are we supposed to learn from him? We will take up those questions in the light of both traditional and modern Jewish commentary.
