Women of Valor:
Inspiring Strength and Resilience

Dates: Oct 22 | Oct 29 | Nov 5 | Nov 12 | Nov 19
Time: Sundays, 10:00–11:15 AM ET
Cost: $200

In this course we will learn about the lives and contributions of three heroic women who served the Jewish people in different and outstanding ways: girls’-education pioneer Sarah Schenirer, poet and paratrooper Hannah Senesh, singer and composer Naomi Shemer and Prime Minister Golda Meir. Through reading their own writings, we will explore their historical contexts and the challenges they faced, and seek insight into their respective thought processes and passions. We will also examine the impact of their resilience and fortitude on the Jewish people and the world at large. Along the way, we will also explore the questions of what heroism looks like, and how we too might demonstrate bravery to meet the challenges of our own time.
