Kohenet Shoshana Bricklin will be leading Torah Study for parashat Va'yishlach and offering her newly created Haftarat Dinah, which will focus on the issue of rape and speaking out against rape culture.

  The Torah portion describes the rape of Dinah but the rabbis when choosing prophetic texts to complement the portion picked another theme from this very rich parasha to focus on.  As the Torah portion recounts Jacob wrestling with the angel, Shoshana asks us to continue  our tradition of wrestling with difficult situations and issues.  To that end she will bring in other biblical prophetic texts for consideration as well as modern voices that will be woven into the haftarah
