Extraordinary Jewish Women with Rabbi Nikki DeBlosi
Thursday, February 3 @7:00pm-8:30pm
Temple Shaaray Tefila Sisterhood’s Extraordinary Jewish Women
A Place for Us: Women, Judaism, and Changing Gender Norms w/Scholar-in-Residence Rabbi Nikki DeBlosi PhD
Join us for the next program in Temple Shaaray Tefilah’s Sisterhood’s Extraordinary Jewish Women’s series. Rabbi Nikki DeBlosi will join us for a discussion of A Place for Us: Women, Judaism, and Changing Gender Norms.
Finding empowerment and belonging in Jewish community has been historically challenging for cisgender and transgender women, for people assigned female at birth, and for anyone who does not strictly fit the image of a stereotypical “Jewish man.”
Through a text study of one of the most prolific women writers in Modern Hebrew, Chava Shapiro, Rabbi Nikki will guide us through an exploration of how our gender has hindered or helped us to find our place in Jewish community. No previous facility with Modern Hebrew is necessary; text will be provided in translation.
Registration deadline is February 1.
