Some Things Never Change, (Unless We We Change Them): The Legacy Of Our Shared Biblical Grandmothers

February 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


February 23, 2017
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Event Category:

Join Trusteeship member Rabbi Emerita Laura Geller along with Ruqayya Khan (a specialist in the early Koran and a professor of Islamic Studies at Claremont Graduate University) and Tammi Schneider (Professor of Religion & Dean of the School of Arts & Humanities at Claremont Graduate University) as we explore The Legacy Of Our Shared Biblical Grandmothers in all religions.

This will be a learning evening where we’ll read a short text from the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament about Hagar in which we will discuss how this line of text influences our lives today, most notably, the role of working women, how does one treat immigrants/foreigners, and how do women treat each other.

This will be a true thinking and learning experience you will not want to miss.

Meeting at Maggiano’s at The Grove from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

“When I joined The Trusteeship, I had spent my whole life in government service and nonprofit organizations. The Trusteeship has introduced me to previously unfamiliar worlds (corporate, military, film, international) and the wonderful women who populate them, and in the process helped me better appreciate their work and my own.”

– Ruth
