Meeting ID: 825 7248 2414
Passcode: 602753

Please RSVP to Sheri and Tamar.

Let’s read, discuss, experiment and explore together the “Hebrew Priestess” book by Rabbi Kohenet Jill Hammer and Kohenet Taya Shere.

Women have played a role in Jewish religious leadership from the days of the Torah, even before Miriam the Prophetess and Deborah the Judge. The Hebrew Priestess tells the stories of these women, often reading between the lines of the Torah and Talmud to rediscover the women that rabbinic editors tried to erase. In this group we will weave together these historical antecedents of these priestesses, exploring ancient and new visions of Jewish women’s spiritual leadership and our own personal experiences of ourselves/theirselves embarking on our own new spiritual exploration.

We do recommend purchasing the book for individual study and reflection, but it is not a requirement. Follow the link to buy one. https://www.kohenet.com/books-audio

Please note: this group has a subsidy for those who want to join but have financial barriers in purchasing the book. Please contact the organizers for more information.

For our first meeting – Let’s build this Havurah group from within. Bring your ideas and hopes for this group, and we’ll discuss, plan and meet one another.
