This was originally posted on Authentic Jewish Living with Yiscah Smith. From Yiscah: “Nechama Goldman Barash is a role model for spiritual authentic living, a dedicated Torah scholar and educator specializing in matters of gender and Jewish law AND an activist in interfaith dialogue promoting non violence and understanding between Israeli and Palestinian communities.”
Nechama is a member of the Pardes faculty and a frequent member of our digital learning and podcasts. You can hear other teachings from Nechama by clicking here.
Additionally, Nechama will be directing this winter’s Pardes Learning Seminar: “Who Am I?: The Complexity of Identity in the 21st Century.” The Seminar dates are December 27-31. For more details, including the schedule and how to register, please visit the Pardes website. As with this past summer’s seminar, this will be on zoom, so it is globally accessible for all wanting to participate and benefit from this incredibly inspiring program. Yiscah will be teaching as well and how special it will be to learn from both of these scholars. Please consider taking advantage of this special opportunity.
