Band of Sisters

800px-Sandro_Botticelli_033We’re a new discussion group in the community, meeting by Zoom every second Monday at 11:00 am. At present, we are studying and discussing Jewish women in history, chapter by chapter, as presented in the book “The Receiving: Reclaiming Jewish Women’s Wisdom” by Rabbi Tirzah Firestone. We have just completed Chapter One on Hannah Rachel of Ludomir (1815 – 1905). A recording of that session is available by calling the office (250 382-0615). Our next meeting will focus on Chapter Two which is about Beruriah (Second Century), and will take place Monday August 10 at 11 am.   If anyone is interested in joining our group and/or wants to catch up, please phone the office at 250 382-0615.

Update:  Our study of The Receiving will resume on Monday, October 5, 2020 at 11 am with Chapter 5.

We will meet on Monday, October 19, 2020 at 11 am to discuss Chapter 6.
