Study from The Torah: A Women's Commentary with Rabbi Dena Klein
Wednesday, December 10, 7pm

Stephen Wise is proud to host a series of discussions on the newly published, The Torah: A Women's Commentary with Rabbi Dena Klein. These sessions will celebrate the growing role of women in Jewish life as we use A Women's Commentary to explore portions that are provocative to us as Jews. We look forward to seeing you there!

5 Scholars on the 5 Books
Rabbi Andrea Weiss, PhD and Associate Editor of The Torah: A Women's Commentary, on Leviticus
Monday, December 15, 7pm

Sensing the Sacred: Leviticus through the Lens of The Torah: A Women's Commentary
What meaning can contemporary Jews draw from a book that seems to focus largely on sacrifices and other priestly rituals? With A Women's Commentary as our guide, Rabbi Weiss will explore the key themes in Leviticus and the enduring wisdom of these ancient priestly texts.

Upcoming Study Sessions with A Women's Commentary scholars:
Carol Meyers on Exodus, February 7, 7pm
Adriane Leveen on Numbers, May 4, 7pm

Co-sponsored by the New Women's Organization

These programs will take place at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue, 30 W. 68th St. Feel free to contact us at: 212-877-4050 or visit our website at www.swfs.org.
