Jewish Her-Story: Voices, Visions and Voyages

Tuesday 7–8.45pm
From: 30 July 2024
To: 27 August 2024
Sidra Kranz Moshinsky

Join writer, researcher and award-winning educational leader Sidra Kranz Moshinsky at the Jewish Museum of Australia for a 5-week course delving into the fascinating her-story of Jewish women throughout time.

Now is the time to lean in, listen to and learn from the Jewish women over time whose voices and visions still, in many ways, shape our own. Part text study, part history and part present moment, these 5 sessions aim to deepen our insight and understanding of the varied roles women have played and continue to play in the larger Jewish story. 

Sessions will cover the matriarchs, women of war, and women of worth in our texts; notable and everyday women in Jewish his/her-story, including the Australian experience, and a sharing of the stories of the women in our own families.

No previous knowledge is needed, all are welcome to participate.
