Women of Power: The Four Matriarchs
September 26 , 7:30 pm
The founding mothers had a tremendous impact on the founding principles of Judaism and the Hebrew Bible. Yet, the Bible was written by men and emphasizes the words and actions of our patriarchs – especially Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Jews, however, are also descendants of the matriarchs, and without them, our people’s history would be much different.
Sarah, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel are featured as powerful characters, with strong personalities who influenced the attitudes and decisions of their husbands with whom they lived and conferred. Rabbi Karol will explore how women are treated in the Bible with a focus on the substantial impact these women had on their husbands, children, and us.
The above Continuing Education programs are free of charge and open to all who wish to attend. Light refreshments and coffee/tea will be served.
