Open Beit Midrash: Hagar in the Bible and Beyond with Dr. Rabbi Barat Ellman

February 19 and 26 and March 5
The Egyptian maid-servant of Sarah and Abraham, and the mother of Abraham’s first son, is one of only two women with whom God speaks and the only woman to receive a divine promise of peoplehood. But who is Hagar? We’ll explore Torah, midrash, the New Testament, the Qur’an, and modern commentary to see how our understanding of this “marginal” character has evolved.
