Two very different women fight to save the Israelites from oppression in this story. Deborah, a political and military leader who counsels her people and leads them into battle; Yael, a regular civilian who allows the enemy general into her tent, then kills him with a tent peg.
The story of Yael and Deborah swirls with the wild energy of opposing, complementary forces: love and war, power and vulnerability, threat and hope, public and private, feminine and masculine, life and death. What can we learn from this ancient story of women leaders? What would happen if these two characters met one another? What would they say to each other?
