“Biblical Women: Emerging from the Margins through Midrash” topic of conversation in Greenwich

UJA-JCC Greenwich will present a 10-session discussion on women of the Bible on Tuesdays, Jan. 11- May 24, 10-11:15 a.m., via Zoom and in person at UJA-Greenwich, 1 Holly Hill Lane.

Led by UJA-JCC Greenwich CEO Pam Ehrenkranz, the course will trace major female figures of the Bible through classic and modern midrashic commentary. Focusing on a dozen biblical heroines — some well known and some you may have never heard of — the course will take attendees behind the scenes to gain multiple perspectives on their lives, relationships, and choices, as we understand their roles in Jewish history and literature as full, well-rounded characters. Course cost: $295. For more information or to register, visit ujajcc.org or call (203) 552-1818. (For financial assistance, contact Pam Ehrenkranz at pam@ujajcc.org.
