Some Unexpected Stories About Women in the Talmud with Dr. Judith Hauptman

Part of our series “The ‘Other’ in Jewish Text and Tradition”

January 25, 2021, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET

This session is generously sponsored by Cantor Sara Geller in memory of Ethel Geffen, who was inspired by Professor Hauptman to study Talmud.

Although most Talmudic anecdotes feature men, some feature wives, mothers, and daughters of rabbis. These women learned Jewish law, and even, on occasion, helped formulate it. Join Dr. Judith Hauptman to study several of these short episodes and explore their significance, both historically and through the present day. 


Dr. Judith Hauptman is the E. Billi Ivry Professor Emerita of Talmud and Rabbinic Culture, JTS.
