This session seeks to explore models of adolescent rebellion as they appear in Biblical thought and Talmudic interpretation. Does the Bible anticipate different models of rebellion that are gender-specific? If so, do these hold up to modern notions of what is considered rebellious behavior for men and women? Is it true that men rebel through indulgent and excessive behavior and women through their sexuality? We will look at the key Biblical texts for insight and analysis.
