Before attacking Jerusalem, the leader of the Romans allowed Yochanan Ben Zakai to ask for anything he'd like. Instead of saving the Temple, Ben Zakai requested Yavneh, so he could build a Sanhedrin council of male sages. They'd reshape Judaism into the practices we follow today. But, what would Judaism be like now if women had been at that table? In this women-only session, join us for interactive learning and a brainstorm — we'll put ourselves in the Sanhedrin's place and think of how we'd redefine our religious practice. *This session is open to all who identify as women in any way that's important to them.
