12:30-1:30 pm

The Apocrypha—the Jewish books in the Greek Bible which were not included in the Hebrew Bible—features a gallery of remarkable women: Esther, much different than the Esther we know from the Book of Esther; Hannah, mother of the seven martyred sons; Judith, seducer and slayer of Holofernes, enemy of the Jewish people; and Susanna, object of the gaze of the Elders. We will explore the portrayal of each of these women. Taught by Rabbi Ben Mintz.
