A Shir Libeyu Virtual Offering: A Hagar’s Tale

  • 2:00 PM
  • Online

By Eden Nameri

When Sarah could not provide her husband Abraham with children, she sent her bond woman, Hagar, to his bed. It seemed like a good idea at the time…

Hagar steps out of the shadows and takes centre stage in this story of love, duty, jealousy and rivalry. Tune in to Zoom for the live telling of an ancient tale about family dynamics.

Eden Nameri is a long-time storyteller. Her renditions of Bible stories incorporate midrash (traditional and original) and plenty of her personal perspective as a queer Jewish feminist. Eden’s stories often illuminate characters usually relegated to the background. Eden was the featured teller at last year’s festival of the Network of Biblical Storytellers, Canada. She has also performed at the Toronto Storytelling Festival, StoryFusion Cabaret, Ottawa Storytellers’ Signature Series, Word on the Street and the Toronto Jewish Storytelling Guild.

This program will take place on Zoom.
