Midrash, Biblical Women, Poetry, and Music: A Conversation
Sponsor The Contemporary Jewish Museum
Type of Event Arts & Culture
Description Join song writer and performer Alicia Jo Rabins as she leads a discussion on midrash, bibilical women, poetry, and music with Alan Cooper, provost at the Jewish Theological Seminary; and Carol Bakhos, associate professor of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures at UCLA. Brooklyn-based musician and Torah scholar Alicia Jo Rabins is the frontwoman of Girls in Trouble, a group that has been part of New York’s underground Jewish art scene since their debut album was released on indie-Jewish music label Jdub Records, in 2009. The band began as Alicia's unusual Masters Thesis in Jewish Women's Studies at JTS, and grew into an internationally touring, critically acclaimed rock band who continue to interpret the stories of Torah women, bringing their often-overlooked stories to life in venues ranging from rock clubs in Brooklyn, NY to the Great Synagogue in Stockholm. Presented in conjunction with the Society for Biblical Literature Conference and in conjunction with the Museum’s installation of sculptor Jacques Lipchitz’s last monumental bronze, Hagar in the Desert.
