Honoring Women Within Judaism: Sexism, Sexuality and Spirituality of Modern Judaism
May 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$18
Registration for this event is now closed.
Walks ups will be accepted.
At a moment where the importance of hearing women’s voices in contemporary spaces in business, medicine, the arts, and politics is a growing need, Rabbi Elana Kanter (The Women’s Jewish Learning Center) and psychologist Dr. Jennifer Brown (Psychologist & Educator) want to encourage that same reflection of women’s voices within Judaism. Together, Dr. Brown and Rabbi Kanter explore the traditional mitzvot and modern taboos that belong specifically to women from both rabbinic and scientific perspectives. Join Valley Beit Midrash and The Women’s Leadership Institute as we present an evening of discussion and introspection as we honor the needed nexus of women and feminism within the Jewish experience!
