In this interactive online discussion class, we will explore the lives of Deborah, Abigail, and Bathsheba. We will read and discuss commentary and Midrash (stories about the stories in the Bible) about these fascinating women. We will also view and discuss paintings of Biblical scenes. Participants who enjoy creative writing are welcome to write their own Midrash on these Biblical women, and the last class will be reserved as time to share and workshop these pieces. You are welcome to take this class even if you do not plan to write anything yourself!
