Chancellor Eisen's Newest Blog Post: "Let's Talk About Women Rabbis"

[object Object]
Dear JTS Community,

What does it mean to be a woman devoted to a career that is dominated by men? If she is a newly ordained rabbi, what are her hopes and aspirations for her future in the rabbinate? What are her anxieties? Yesterday's events at Israel's Western Wall drive home the significance of what it means to be a woman rabbi and to have women rabbis, and highlights the fact that many in Israel—and here—are resisting these changes.

This week in "Let's Talk About Women Rabbis," my newest blog post at On My Mind: Arnie Eisen, two of our recently ordained graduates and I explore what it means to be a woman rabbi in 2012.

I encourage you to share your thoughts as well at
