Full course description

Description: A murderer and an apostate, Queen Jezebel is one of the most maligned figures in literary history.  A close reading of her story reveals Jezebel to be an extremely powerful figure who defies the Bible's gender conventions.  In this session, we will consider the threat Jezebel poses as a powerful woman, and how the Bible responds to this threat, and why Jezebel should be counted among the Bible's most important figures.

Instructor: Rabbi Dr Amy Kalmanofsky is the Associate Vice Chancellor and Associate Professor of Bible at the Jewish Theological Seminary 

Intended Audience: Open to all.
