Description

In this thought-provoking episode with Matan Graduate and faculty member Rabbanit Nechama Goldman Barash, we speak about midrashic perspectives on the role of the women of Midian in the sins of Peor.  The conversation touches on the politics of adultery, social hierarchy and the Sages’ concerns about interaction with the outside world.

Sara Averick and Jose Rosenfeld are dedicating the podcast for Parashat Balak in honor of Shabbat Sheva Brachot of their daughter, Yehudit Rosenfeld, and their new son-by-marriage, Yotam Hadad. May their lives together be filled with all the brachot in the parasha.
