The First Hebrew Woman Writer - Foner or Baron? with Michal Cohen
Thursdays, January 11, 18, 25 & Feb. 1 at 7:45 p.m.
The title of the "First Hebrew Woman Writer" is contended by several women who published novels and short stories at the turn of the 20th Century. Rather than decide which one deserves the title, we will study samples from the writings of two who were translated into English: Sarah Feiga Foner and Dvora Baron. We will also hear about other writers who were not translated, such as Nechama Feinstein, Batya Kahana, and Elisheva Bikhovsky.
Dr. Michal Fram Cohen received her Ph.D. from Bar-Ilan University in 2017. She wrote her dissertation on the Hebrew writer Sarah Feiga Foner and lectured about her in Israel and the U.S. Michal taught courses on Hebrew literature in English translation at Beth Shalom Congregation in 2013 and 2015.
