Zoom Link:

Jewish tradition is enriched by the belief that we, human beings, are empowered to interpret the Torah. Since the moment of revelation, Jews have embarked on a journey to mine our sacred texts for meaning and inspiration. This fall, join Rabbi Fisher in an exploration of one of the most recent chapters of the Jewish interpretative tradition as we study texts from Dirshuni, a collection of contemporary midrashim written by women in Israel. Using the classical interpretative techniques of ancient rabbinic sources, these texts add rich and essential layers to our understanding of Torah. We encourage you to get your own copy of the book, which is newly available in English here: or for Kindle here:
