ZENA: Warrior Princess

Beyond our ‘foremothers’ Sarah, Rebecca, Leah and Rachel:  We all know others in the Torah: Miriam, Shifra, Puah, Yocheved, Devorah, Dina. . . Who are the unnamed, or less known women who, but for their courage and decisive action, Jewish history would not have turned the way we know it today?When did they live?  What were their lives? Of what Jewish significance were they?  Why do we call them Female Action Heroines?  We will learn from each other, in the true Limmud way.  Bring your ideas and take some more away! (T)
