Some Unexpected Stories About Women in the Talmud

A webinar with Dr. Judith Hauptman, E. Billi Ivry Professor Emerita of Talmud and Rabbinic Culture, JTS.

Part of the series: The ‘Other’ in Jewish Text and Tradition

Although most Talmudic anecdotes feature men, some feature wives, mothers, and daughters of rabbis. These women learned Jewish law, and even, on occasion, helped formulate it. Join Dr. Judith Hauptman to study several of these short episodes and explore their significance, both historically and through the present day.

This session was generously sponsored by Cantor Sara Geller in memory of Ethel Geffen, who was inspired by Professor Hauptman to study Talmud.
