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

Should knowledge be a prerequisite for leadership? Can certain kinds of knowledge be privileged over others? We will discuss a story in Tractate Horayot that details a falling-out among community leaders and the contesting of their claims to power and authority. This session is appropriate for learners of all levels/backgrounds.
