What is Feminine Wisdom?

Monday October 8 at 7pm
at Kehilat Gesher
How did the paradigm of the “wise woman” evolve from biblical times to today? Is the wise woman a troublemaker or a peacemaker in our tradition?
Two female characters are described as “wise,” or isha chachama, in the Tanakh: the wise woman of Tekoa in Samuel 2:14 and the wise woman of Abel in Samuel 2:20. We will compare and contrast these two stories as a starting point for an exploration of how the rabbis described women’s wisdom and how we relate to the concept today.
Accompanying texts will be provided in both French and English. Our discussion will be followed by a nosh.
