Aileen Grossberg, Librarian


As we celebrate Simchat Torah and begin the Torah cycle again, you might find interesting the website of Beit Toratah. In the group’s words, “Beit Toratah" (HerTorah) is the house of study and ritual for the Regendered Bible. Beit Toratah was inaugurated on Simchat Torah day, October 11, 2020, with a service led by Romemu Rabbi Mira Rivera and Rabbi Emily Cohen. Beit Toratah aims to lead by example Jewish study and ritual expressed entirely in women’s body language."

On Sunday, October 3, Beit Toratah will make public the Hebrew version of the regendered Bereishit. The site also includes some audio clips of regendered texts, beautifully sung by Shlomit Levi and Emily Cohen. Here's the link to the recordings:

There is lots of food for thought on the website and in the concept.

A recording of a discussion held on September 27 will be available shortly.
