Women in the Bible - a new series led by our members
Kol Nefesh recently started a new series on Women in the Bible, exploring their personalities and their influence on Jewish “history”.
Rabbi Joel kicked off the series with Eve, and Nahum Gordon followed up by looking at the life of Sarah, the first of the four Matriarchs.
We now have several "matches" between female characters and Kol Nefesh members lined up. Keep checking this space for dates.
