Sklut Lecture brought to you by Jewish Studies at Queens University
September 26, 2018
5:30 - 6:30 pm at Queens University-Duke Energy Auditorium, Rogers Hall

Today, more than ever, we are aware of womens' struggles to be heard, to be safe, to be free from objectification and sexualization.  The #MeToo Movement has brought to light just how widespread and systematic sexual misconduct has been for women not only today but throughout history.

Rabbi Schindler will examine womens' voices - bot silenced and amplified - in the Hebrew Bible and in Rabbinic texts.  On one hand, she will explore the silencing of women in traditional Jewish texts and on the other elevate the female voices that speak boldly and are heard.  In so doing, she hopes to empower women of today, and the men who stand by them, to find themselves in our texts and be the co-creators of a reality where equality and safety are protected and valued.

The lecture is free and open to the public.  Doors open at 5:00 pm for Reception, 5:30 - 6:30 pm lecture
