JWA is thrilled to once again be partnering with writer, musician, and Jewish educator Alicia Jo Rabins 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 Lilith through Jewish texts, visual art, and music. In “Lilith: Demoness or Heroine?” we will explore this little-known and often feared character, and consider how her story reflects changing perspectives on powerful women. Alicia will guide us as we explore Lilith through a variety of sources and perspectives, and invite us to add our own voices to the interpretative tradition. She will lead us through some of the activities featured in the lesson, and, in addition, will perform her song about Lilith for us! Anyone who wants to learn more about Lilith, including educators who are interested in teaching about Lilith, are encouraged to attend.
