It is often said that “to the victors go the spoils.” In the same way, history is what the historians write. Most historians have been interested in politics, great men, great moments, and written documents. The results have been that: large parts of the human race have not been written into the records – women, children, and the poor; the non-literate are not remembered as they leave few records; and everyday life is ignored and misinterpreted. In this course, we will look at Jewish women in general through history, will be introduced to exemplary Jewish women, and analyze stereotypes and myths about Jewish women. You will be surprised, embarrassed, shocked, and driven to laughter and to tears.
