Jewish.Barren.Woman: a personal perspective from the Torah to modern times

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
We will start with canvassing the portrayal of barren women in the Torah, and briefly discuss their treatment in the Talmud. Then, a personal perspective on being barren and Jewish in modern Israel and in North America: how does it really feel, and what is the role of family, friends and the community. There will be plenty of time for discussion and sharing of experiences and approaches.
