Prophetic Women–“Kings One: David and Batsheva, The Finale”
Thursdays at 8:30 am
Dr. Shera Aranonoff Tuchman

Following the  Batsheva - King David episode, Batsheva all but disappears in the Early Prophets, as King David’s monarchy is beset by attempted coups  from his sons. A decade later, Amnon and Avshalom are dead, and on his deathbed, King David is poised to name Solomon, a son with  Batsheva, as King. As another son, Adoniyahu, attempts his coup to be crowned King, Batsheva, the Queen, a much less studied narrative, once again takes center stage. We will study the classic commentaries, with relevant Midrashic and Talmudic sources to try to understand this complicated and fascinating woman.

Start date: October 24
