This is a wonderful way to move away from the drab and boring way to reading the text of religious scriptures and instead ensure a dynamic discussion among the students and experts. This approach is more alive and interactive. Through text we only get to see one side of picture and through such discussions, lot of religious questions are explored and discussed in detail. This discussions acquires even more importance because here current Jewish questions are being discussed threadbare and three prominent female students are taking active part in this.
Generally most of the religions are male dominated, be in matters of ceremony,important designations and decisions. Here a unique female perspective is also emerging.
While I wouldn’t consider my normal classes, “drab” and “boring” I’m glad you enjoyed this one!
