She Speaks with Authority: Women in Karaite Judaism

 08.03.2014

Shawn Lichaa gives a brief talk about the religious standing of Karaite Jewish women from the middle ages through today. Shawn dedicated this talk in honor of the life and achievement of Sheila Cohen.

Per Shawn Lichaa: “In reviewing the video, I note that I stumbled on some words when speaking about the Egyptian Karaite Marriage crisis. For clarification, the ‘dowry’ is what the bride’s father would contribute to the new marriage. The ‘bride price’ is what was paid by grooms/husbands in ancient Israel. (E.g., Exodus 22:16-17.)”

Bibliography: The talk discusses three works that focus on Karaite Judaism, which are listed here for your reference.

Morasha at 50 Concert, a Journey Through song

For a half a century, music has been at the core of the Morasha experience. From Shiria to Shabbat, Color War to camp plays, the ram kol to a kumsitz — it’s often the songs from our camp experience that triggers the most tangible memories. For our 50th anniversary celebration, we thought it would only be appropriate to celebrate our fifty summers through song.

Whether you’re an alumnus, camper, parent, staff member, or someone who simply loves music — you’re invited to join us for the biggest event of Camp Morasha’s history. Through music and multimedia, our star-studded lineup and surprise alumni musicians will tell the story of Morasha. Following the concert, the entire audience is invited to a gala dessert reception to reconnect with camp friends and staff.

ANTISEMITISM-FREE JEWISH IDENTITY
In contemporary times, the power of antisemitism to form a bulwark against assimilation has declined. We face a paradox−a desire for complete acceptance of Jews within society, while at the same time hoping that younger Jews and coming generations do not choose to assimilate and instead commit to living a Jewish life. How is this to be accomplished?

To Be a Jew in the Free World: Jewish Identity Through the Lens of Modern History
A New Six Week Course by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute.

What was it like for our ancestors to say goodbye to the shtetl, to set out to discover new lives for themselves, along with all of the liberties the free world had to offer? At the dawn of the enlightenment, how did our parents adapt their Judaism to the developments of a modern age? And what can we learn from their struggles to connect deeply with our own Jewish identities?

This new course will give you the opportunity to make sense of your personal Jewishness; it will help you overcome perceived incompatibilities between Judaism and modern society; and it will provide you with the clarity and conviction to pass on a legacy of Jewish pride to the next generation.
