Rabba Wendy Amsellem

The Barbara C. Freedman Artists’ Beit Midrash

In the Palace of the King: Jewish Women in Dangerous Places

In the book of Genesis, Sarah, Rebecca, and Dina are all taken by foreign rulers. A trope develops of the desired Hebrew woman, the powerful (but sometimes impotent) king, and the male relative who does or does not protect the woman. Join us as we read and think about their stories collectively – and how they impact the way rabbis read the book of Esther.
