Dina – A Question of Interpretation
Language: English

Session: Dina – the daughter who was dishonored or the woman who saved the Israelites? The story of Dina is found in the Torah, but it also lives on in rabbinic literature: but in a different vein. Why is the story interpreted so differently in the different texts, and what can we learn from it?
