The program will bring participants closer to their Jewish roots by exploring the connections between biblical and ancient Israeli heroines such as Miriam, Shiphrah and Puah, the daughters of Tzelofchad, Deborah, Ruth, Esther, Bruriah and Shlomzion ha Malka, and their modern counterparts like Nehama Leibowitz, Ida Nudel, Golda Meir, Rachel Bluwstein, Miriam Ben-Porat, Ida Kaminska, Lina Stern and Doris Katz Kaplan. Each session will focus on two different Jewish women throughout history, while one session will introduce a couple (male/female). The class will be taught by Yuliya Mauzer.
