"She Said Well"

Rabba Wendy Amsellem

Beruriah is the only female scholar mentioned by name in the Talmud. She is simultaneously a part of the rabbinic world of Torah study and also an outsider to it. We will study the texts in which she appears and consider the challenge of reconciling one's own sensibilities with a broader tradition of learning. Recorded live at the Global Day of Jewish Learning 2014.
