Course Description

 We will investigate the stories in the Torah which focus upon the “daughter” and “sister” relationships, paying careful attention to words and phrases. Our understanding of these narratives will be enhanced through the study of both Medieval and Modern Commentaries; all in an attempt to better comprehend and appreciate these women’s thoughts and actions, cognizant of the time period and milieu, in which they lived.
