Update on Women and Ritual at Adath Israel: So, what is this discussion about?

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

So, what is this discussion about?

I have been transparent in my belief that there is room within Jewish law for increased ritual roles for women. However, a decision about women’s roles is always contextual – what is appropriate for one community, may not be appropriate for another.

This discussion is about the 1600+ families and individuals who are the heart and soul of our congregation. This discussion is about weighing the myriad Jewish values and considerations – such as tradition, inclusion, obligation, opportunity, fairness, spirituality, continuity, cohesion, and more – that go into any religious ruling of significance.

This discussion is about doing what is right for Adath Israel Congregation today.
