As we evaluate and assess our materials and programs, the Women’s League Education/Program Team continues to make changes to meet the needs of our members. Around 2007, Women’s League introduced a new concept for the study of our sacred texts and traditions. We transitioned from Divrei Torah, study units that were read to a group to start a meeting, to Divrei Hokhmah, modules consisting of a unit of study and discussion that were directed by anyone, no training, skills, or previous knowledge necessary. The modules were designed as a way of introducing each sisterhood meeting or program, with one theme running through the course of a year.
We have changed the name of our Divrei Hokhmah to Divrei Nashim to recognize the women who wrote each module. These new Divrei Nashim continue to follow one theme and have been created to be read at the start of a meeting or, using the questions provided, as a study session/discussion.
Thank you to the Women’s League members who created our new Divrei Nashim.
