The Role of Women in the Exodus

The Role of Women in the Exodus

Join Rabbi Josh Ross for a study of Jewish women and their role in getting the Jewish People from Egypt to Eretz Yisrael. We will look at some of the midrashim that discuss how we all would have been lost without the Jewish women and their role in Egypt, the sin of the Golden Calf, and more.

The Role of Women in the Exodus: Lesson 1
Class description

Dear all I hope everyone enjoyed the shiur, and at least something we discussed got you thinking! Sorry for the slightly franitc pace — trying to cram many hours of discussion into one hour is hard, even for a fast talking rabbi 😉 I am including the source sheet for you to print out and use as you see fit. As always be in touch with any thoughts, comments or questions Chag kasher v’sameach! RJR
