Course Description

The Talmud in Megilla 14a-b lists seven women and their prophecies (Sarah, Miriam, Devorah, Chana, Avigail, Chulda, and Esther). What did the rabbis have to say about these women? How can we understand them through the midrashic explanation in the gemara? What is added by reading their stories in the context on the Tanakh? By the end of this series, we will have a multifaceted appreciation for these seven women, both as individuals who achieved greatness, as well as leaders and role models for personal and national connection to God.

The Seven Prophetesses of Israel #1: Introduction, Sarah and Miriam

Hello everyone!

Tomorrow we begin our series on the Seven Prophetesses! The series will start off with, and periodically return to, the Gemara in Masechet Megilla 14a. We will learn that gemara together tomorrow and begin our study with the first two nevi'ot mentioned, Sarah and Miriam.

Source sheets with all of the texts will be uploaded to view during the class. The majority of the sources will be from Tanakh, so if you prefer to learn from a book rather than the screen, I recommend keeping a Tanakh close by. Please feel free to email me with any questions or comments. 

Looking forward to learning together,

Aviva

The Seven Prophetesses of Israel #4 - Avigayil

Hi everyone,

Slight change of plans, in today's class we will learn about Avigayil, and I anticipate she will take the full hour. Next week we will start off with Chulda, and then finish off the series with our study of Esther, right in time for Adar.

Looking forward,

Aviva
