Shabbat Va-etchanan - August 16-17 - 16 Av

Torah Study this Shabbat
Saturday, August 17, 9:15 AM
Temple Beth Zion, 805 Delaware Ave.

This week we discuss the idea of a land flowing with milk and honey, as it appears in this week’s Torah reading, from a feminist perspective - what does it really say about the Land?

Our discussion texts come from Rabbi Rochelle Robin's commentary in The Women’s Torah Commentary. 
We will refer to texts and commentaries from the Commentators' Bible edited by Michael Carasik, and other texts from the Book of Nachum, and the Song of Songs.
