High Holy Days Supplement 2021 / 5782
What has been the impact of 50 years of Jewish feminism? What have we changed? Where have we failed or stumbled? Did we transform Jewish life?
Women still face deep traditions of patriarchy and discrimination. Many of these first pioneers faced terrible treatment, outright dismissal, and rejection. Yet over these decades we have discovered the women we didn’t even know were lost in our great Jewish story. We invented and reinvented Jewish rituals for girls and women and for all Jews. We sought out injustices to fight for others, women of Mizrachi traditions, the LGBTQ community, women in the military and more.
This High Holy Days supplement from Plus61J, rich in its geographical and cultural range, denominations, age, and ideologies, will spark deep thought and conversation around these foundational questions on women in Jewish life.
