#MeToo, #Yitro and TheRaDR


Before I begin, I want to be very clear that I’m offering a drash by another rabbi, Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, aka @TheRaDR. You can learn about her and her work at her website.

This morning Rabbi Ruttenberg published a thread on Twitter about Moses and #MeToo, a drash on Parashat #Yitro, this week’s Torah portion. My reaction to this thread was something along the lines of “owowowowowowowowowow!”

I would love to hear your reactions to her take on #Yitro. Did “Moses simultaneously [cut] women out of Revelation and [turn] them into sexual objects” with his addition to the command of God?

How might Judaism be different had he not made this insertion?
