WOMEN'S LEAGUE SHABBAT HONOREE: Shelly Gross GUEST SPEAKER: Dr. Christine Hayes SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 2021 Shabbat Morning Services begin at 9:30 AM Dr. Hayes will present the D'var Torah during WL Shabbat. In addition, she will lead us in a study session on Saturday afternoon. Zoom details will be provided at a later date. In lieu of us gathering for a Shabbat lunch this year, we ask that donations in honor of Shelly Gross be made to establish a WL fund for the purpose of upgrading technology at B'nai Torah. This year has taught us all how important and useful remote access to our clergy and community is to each of us. Once our shul doors open again, many of us will still need or want the opportunity to participate remotely and this is a way that we can all help. Dr. Hayes is the Robert F. And Patricia Ross Weis Professor of Religious Studies in Classical Judaica at Yale University. Prior to joining the Yale faculty in 1996, she was Assistant Professor of Hebrew Studies in the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University for three years. She has published many articles and several books and texts. Dr. Hayes is active in professional and academic organizations. She is currently the Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Religious Studies.
