Hadassah Greater Detroit invites you to a virtual series learning about different Hasidic communities, discussing some provocative issues, and viewing videos of Hasidim in their home environments!

February 8 - A Woman's Place is...The Power of Hasidic Women Who Do. Are they considered second class? A focus on Hasidic superwomen.
