HerTorah: with Judy Klistner

  • TBA United States (map)

Join us once again for a powerful evening of connection over text and an amplification of women’s Torah perspectives.

Judy Klitsner

Judy Klitsner is a senior lecturer in Bible at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, where she has educated a generation of students, many of whom now serve as educators and heads of school in locations throughout the Jewish world. A student of the great Bible teacher Nechama Leibowitz, Judy weaves together traditional exegesis, modern scholarship and her own original interpretations that are informed by close readings of the text. She is a frequent guest lecturer in the US, Europe and Israel and she is a regular visiting lecturer at the London School of Jewish Studies. Judy is the author of Subversive Sequels in the Bible: How Biblical Stories Mine and Undermine Each Other, which received a National Jewish book award. Judy is founding board chair of Sacred Spaces, an organization dedicated to preventing abuse in Jewish institutions.

This session is appropriate for learners of all levels/backgrounds.
