חומר לדרוש לפסח
with Dr. Amy Kalmanofsky

Join us for the next in a series of free webinars for rabbis designed to inspire holiday derashot and teaching this year.

Bloody Doors and Bloody Grooms

We will engage in a close reading of Exodus 12 which recounts the Passover ritual, in conversation with other biblical texts, and argue for its significance not only as a pivotal moment within Israel’s national narrative, but also as a transformative moment which defines Israel as a people.

  • Open to rabbis of all denominations ordained by any recognized rabbinical program

Dr. Amy Kalmanofsky is associate professor of Bible and Ancient Semitic Languages at JTS, teaching courses on biblical literature, religion, and feminist interpretation of the Bible. She is the author of two books and contributed three articles to The Women’s Torah Commentary. Dr. Kalmanofsky is committed to feminist interpretation of the Bible, which she believes enables it to remain relevant, opening up the text to new meaning.
