Writing the Women of Torah: Text Study and Midrash-Making

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Midrash, classically defined as brief texts that fill in the Torah’s narrative gaps, can also be understood as a creative interface between Torah stories and our lives. In this text study and writing session, we will encounter stories of women from the Torah together and then spend some time alone, finding the relevance of these ancient tales and bringing them to life in our own voices. Bring a pen and paper (or guitar, colored pencils or any other artistic medium you choose)!

This session was made possible by funds from The Covenant Foundation.
