“Pirkei Imahot” Book Launch and Reception

Congregation Kol Ami hosts Rabbi Eve Posen and Lois Shenker, authors of “Pirkei Imahot” (Wisdom of the Mothers), a first-of-its-kind book which explores women’s voices, insights, experiences, and questions previously posed in “Pirkei Avot,” written solely by Jewish male sages in the second century CE. The authors introduce key writings from “Pirkei Avot” and then offer their own analyses and context from the female point of view. Following these are study questions for readers to ponder or spark their own group discussions. Light refreshments will be served and the book and author signatures will be available for purchase. The public is invited.
