In the father-daughter stories of the Hebrew Bible, almost all the female figures meet a tragic fate. Where home should promise protection and comfort, it harbors menace for the daughter when the boundary of home is crossed. This session entails a close study of the story of Jephthah's daughter as an example of the father-daughter paradigm.
