Women and Mitzvot

This Chaburah focuses on in-depth learning and mature reflection about halachot pertaining to women, presenting a range of halachic perspectives.

At the beginning of each month, participants receive reading (with sources) about a topic connected to women's obligations in mitzvot.  At the end of each month, we convene online for open and reflective discussion.

The Chabura will consist of six meetings over the course of the year. Specific Topics to be covered will be chosen in conjunction with chaburah participants.
