Tamar – Harlot or heroine?
In Genesis, when Tamar hears that her father in law, Judah, will be travelling, she dresses as a harlot and intercepts him on his journey. What ensues is a brief but powerful encounter. We will examine multiple facets of Tamar’s behavior and her role in the overall Biblical narrative. Taught by Rabbi Cathy Nemiroff, staff rabbi and chaplain at Sholom Home East.
