“Lady Killers” is a collection of six short stories, each portraying a separate Jewish female assassin from the Russian Revolution including women who ran safe houses, built and planted bombs and planned various assassination attempts against the Czar. The six stories will be tied together by themes of freedom and hope, showing all six women were dedicated to the idea of the greater good and a better future.

7-8  p.m. ET/online

Join HBI as we speak, listen, and learn with Joy Ladin, widely published essayist and poet, literary scholar and author of “Shekhinah Speaks.” In this new collection of compelling poetry, Ladin elucidates and channels the voice of the Shekhinah, Judaism’s feminine aspect of G-d, who speaks in the fundamental language of true universal love about our current conditions and challenges.

“In resplendent voice, Ladin reminds us we may yet be ‘comforted,’ if we can hear the Shekhinah speaking in us, if we who have ‘forgotten’ can remember that wherever we are, she is.” —Shara McCullum

HBI is honored to have supported Joy Ladin’s writing during this project.

This event is free and open to the public.
