JWA is thrilled to once again be partnering with Alicia Jo Rabins, writer, composer, performer, and Jewish educator, to present a new lesson from her curriculum based on her song cycle about Biblical women, Girls in Trouble. During this online learning program, Alicia will introduce the curriculum, and guide participants through her lesson about the character of Hannah through Jewish texts, visual art and music. “Hannah Raises Her Voice” focuses on the moment when Hannah, in despair over her inability to conceive a child, turns to prayer. She asks God directly for what she needs, and by asking, she changes her life. We will consider how Hannah’s actions might resonate with challenging moments in our own lives – and how Hannah might inspire us to transform difficult situations through the power of asking for help. Alicia will lead us through some of the activities featured in the lesson, and, in addition, will perform her song about Hannah for us, live! This program has been designed with an educator audience in mind, but anyone who is interested is encouraged to participate.
