Judith Hauptman - Women’s Voices in the Talmud

Valley Beit Midrash

Professor Judith Hauptman, the E. Billi Ivry Professor (emerita) of Talmud and Rabbinic Culture at the Jewish Theological Seminary, presents her lecture "Women's Voices in the Talmud" before an audience at Congregation Or Tzion (www.congregationortzion.org) in Scottsdale, AZ.ABOUT THIS LECTURE: In general, only men issue halakhic statements in the Talmud. But women appear often in anecdotes about how the law was carried out. A close reading of some short anecdotes reveals that women took the law into their own hands and made changes in it for personal reasons. By looking closely at some of these anecdotes, we will see the kinds of changes women made in the law and the reasons for these changes.
