Rebels with a Cause: Jewish Women, Feminism, and Social Change in America

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Did you know that Jewish women in America were rebels…with a cause? Since the early 1960s, Jewish women have transformed our lives in almost every area of civil society and within American Judaism. This interactive workshop introduces the idea of the ‘heroine’s journey’ (building on the work of Joseph Campbell) to explore gender and social change in recent Jewish history, contemporary culture, and our own life experiences. All genders are warmly welcome to participate!
