Kol Isha is developing an archives based on past and current sessions. Look for new materials as the study of biblical women's midrash progresses.

Biblical Women's Midrash

Kol Isha's first session will focus on Hagar.

In congregations with two-day observances of Rosh Hashanah, the first day’s Torah reading is Genesis 21:1-34, Hagar and Ishmael being sent into the desert; the haftarah reading is 1 Sam 1:1-2:10, Hannah pleading for a child. Congregations with one day of observance often do not have these texts in front of them on Rosh Hashanah, but considering their messages for the new year can still be fruitful. Here, posted as background for Temple Micah’s educational program, are some resources on Hagar.
