“She Said Well”: The Brief Wondrous Life of Beruriah

Rabba Wendy Amsellem / November 11, 2014

Beruriah is the only female scholar mentioned by name in the Talmud. She is simultaneously a part of the rabbinic world of Torah study and also an outsider to it. This podcast discusses the texts in which she appears and considesr the challenge of reconciling one's own sensibilities with a broader tradition of learning.
