Victim, Survivor, Advocate?

Rabbi Aviva Richman

Towards a Redemptive Narrative (Part 2)

In this turbulent moment of public attention to sexual assault and harassment, we will probe rabbinic sources that speak to our questions, fears and hopes. When approached with sensitivity and creativity, how can our tradition help us envision the meaning of leadership, the role of community and the importance of theology in confronting these realities?

Part 2: Victim, Survivor, Advocate? Towards a Redemptive Narrative

We will focus on rabbinic stories, theological and poetic texts to deepen and complicate Jewish legal text on sexual assault. What role can Jewish text play in a path toward healing? Recorded live at Hadar on January 30, 2018.
