Hannukah - Judith and Chag Ha Banot - The Festival of Daughters
In North African countries, the seventh night of Chanukah is known as Chag haBanot, the Festival of the Daughters. In honor of an underappreciated heroine Judith –her story isn’t even included in the Tanach ! (the Hebrew Bible), old and young women alike gather to celebrate each other, to tell family stories and to share wisdom
Join us to learn more about the story of Judith and to explore how we might draw on this lost tradition as we seek the strength to find light in our own lives and to bring it to those whom we love…
Facilitated by Professor Maeera Shreiber, English Literature and Religious Studies at the University of Utah and rabbinical candidate at AJRC .
