Rabbis Before Ordination: Origin Stories of Female Orthodox Rabbis

Hosted By: Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI)

In 2013, Yeshivat Maharat became the first Orthodox Jewish rabbinical seminary to ordain women. Yet, as women were finally becoming rabbis within Orthodoxy, the very definition of what it means to be a rabbi changed, making it increasingly hard for Orthodox women to establish themselves as recognized rabbinic authorities. Raucher’s work unpacks the complexity of being an Orthodox rabbi and argues that Orthodox women rabbis have both entered and contributed to a changing sphere of what counts as religious authority.

This event is free and open to the public.
