News Headlines
Jul 18, 2016 -- In an effort to further thoughtful discussion about the question of religious leadership opportunities for women, a subject that has been the focus of much heated debate throughout the Jewish Orthodox community, and beyond, Tradition: A Journal of Jewish Orthodox Thought, a publication of the Rabbinical Council of America, includes in its recently released Spring 2016 issue a collection of articles under the title "Perspectives on Women's Leadership in Orthodoxy."

The authors, writing from their own perspectives and experiences, offer reasoned and articulate positions that will add much to the understanding and debate of the issues raised. They explore the new opportunities for women currently existing in the United States and Israel, and, among other things, the title and roles of women in congregational leadership. The collection is introduced by remarks which were presented by Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein zt"l at the 2010 RCA convention and is followed by essays written by Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, Rabbi Kenneth Auman, Dr. Rachel Levmore, and Rabbi Joel B. Wolowelsky. A translation of a monograph by Rabbi Yoel Bin-Nun on R. Kook's position on women's suffrage is included.
