“Resisting Evil: The Women who Defied Pharaoh’ 

 

HMD 2020

The Book of Exodus begins with a story about two women who stood up to a ruler’s genocidal decree, followed by the tyrant’s own daughter defying her father’s command. What can we learn from this Biblical sequence (Exodus 1 – 2:10) about such acts of resistance? What personal qualities are required to stand in solidarity with the persecuted and oppressed? Holocaust Memorial Day offers an opportunity for reflect on these themes through the prism of a Bible text and discussion.

Speaker : Rabbi Howard Cooper
