With common restrictions in the areas of marriage and divorce, ritual and political leadership, Muslim and Jewish women have similarly complicated relationships with their classical religious texts. This course allows women of both faith backgrounds to study these textual traditions together. Please note that this course is only open to Jewish and Muslim women.

Each week, the class will explore texts from the Torah, Quran, Talmud, Hadith, midrash, and tafsir, as well as academic, feminist, and other contemporary women’s interpretations of traditional Islamic and Jewish sources.

This class is presented in partnership with the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (MNJCC), and the University of Toronto Multi-Faith Centre for Spiritual Study, with classes taking place at all three centres.
