Several weeks ago, the Orthdox Conundrum released a podcast where two men discussed the Israeli Chief Rabbinate’s refusal to allow women to take the exams for rabbinic ordination. The fact that no women were involved in this conversation, as well as the content of the podcast, generated a brand new controversy.
Is it offensive for men to discuss women’s roles in Judaism without having a woman present? Join Scott Kahn as he interviews Anne Gordon, Rachel Stomel, and Shoshanna Keats-Jaskoll – the leaders of Chochmat Nashim – about this important issue, as well as about semicha, women in leadership roles, the future of Halachic Judaism, and much more.
