Discussion with Raachel Jurovics and Prof. Sarah Stein
Join authors of Under One Crown, R. Raachel Jurovics and Prof. Sarah Stein, for a lively and informal discussion of how traditional interpretive processes can realign ancient text with urgent modern insight concerning gender and power. How do we apply these processes intentionally to understand the wild diversity expressed in ultimate Oneness? Open to purchasers of the book + one guest.

This richly illustrated text offers an alternative to a Talmudic narrative that ascribes the origin of evil and suffering to the dark side of the moon-an archetypal feminine symbol. To honor all aspects of Divinity, the authors explore an alternative interpretation that provides a more integrated view of feminine and masculine potentialities.
