Faith and Reason Sabbath School Apr. 6 – “Esther: Grasping vs. Receiving”

The Faith and Reason Sabbath School meets this Sabbath, April 6, at 10:00 am.  Abi Doukhan presents “Esther: Grasping vs. Receiving.”  

This is Abi’s fifth presentation in her provocative (and exuberant!) series on women in the Bible. The Hebrew Bible was written by male authors, depicts a male God and has been for centuries interpreted by male scholars. One wonders if this is the whole story. Abi asks, “Is there no room for women’s voices in the Biblical story?” Grasping and receiving is a favorite Abi theme which she’ll be employing again as she will continue to explore other women’s voices—the daughters of Job, the Shulamite in the Song of Songs—with us in future Sabbath Schools.  

Abi is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Queen’s College in New York (CUNY) and holds the Pearl and Nathan Halegua Family Initiative in Ethics and Tolerance.  She holds a masters degree from the Sorbonne and a doctorate from the University of Paris.
