Our Women Are All Important (For Teenage Girls)

Day: Thursdays

Date: March 4 - March 18, 2021

Time: 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Cost: $0.00


A series for teenage girls, by registration only. These classes will not be recorded or livestreamed. 

The Tosfot declared: “the women of our day are all important,” thereby requiring all women to participate as relaxed, leaning royalty in the seder night. In Purim and Passover we see a number of instances where important women are named as the cause for exceptions or changes to Halakhic rules. Join to learn about women’s obligation in Megillat Esther, the seder night’s four cups of wine and the seder night’s obligation in leaning.
