Hearing Her Voice

Summer Education Series
Jewish women have used their voices for thousands of years – to teach, to celebrate, to comfort, to prod us to be better. Woman’s voices have always been present, though we have not always been culturally attuned to hear them. This summer, hear Jewish women’s voices. Learn how women’s voices have shaped, and continue to shape, our tradition. Hear their stories.
    • Over the summer we will post a weekly quote by a prominent Jewish woman. Spanning from ancient to contemporary women, the quotes will be posted on the Beth Jacob Facebook page; make sure to like our Facebook page (just click here, then click the “like” button) to see the quotes in your feed. You’re invited to comment – What are your thoughts & reactions about the quote?
