Women of Valor?: The Challenge of Sexuality to Orthodox Judaism in Contemporary Israeli Film and Theatre

January 14, 2019 - 6:30pm

Frick Fine Arts Auditorium

Lecture by Hadar Galron

Hadar Galron, born and educated in Jewish Orthodox society, intertwines her personal story with those of some of her writings for the theatre and cinema. In this lecture the emphasis will be on womanhood: the image, concept and “aims” of the female body from the moment of birth as portrayed in “Halacha,” or Jewish law. Galron will share how, as part of her own personal growth, she transformed these concepts into drama that demands change.
