Want to join a Women’s Group for study and discussion?

New members are welcome to join us this year as we look at "What A Difference 40 Years Has Made for Women in Judaism" using the recently published The Sacred Calling: 4 Decades of Women in the Rabbinate.

The Sacred Calling: Four Decades of Women in the Rabbinate
Edited by Rabbi Rebecca Einstein Schorr and Rabbi Alysa Mendelson Graf


Winner of the 2016 National Jewish Book Award in Women's Studies, this pioneering anthology paints an illuminating and necessary picture of the past while laying the groundwork for important work yet to be done.

Women have been rabbis for over forty years. No longer are women rabbis a unique phenomenon, rather they are part of the fabric of Jewish life. In this anthology, rabbis and scholars from across the Jewish world reflect back on the historic significance of women in the rabbinate and explore issues related to both the professional and personal lives of women rabbis. This collection examines the ways in which the reality of women in the rabbinate has impacted on all aspects of Jewish life, including congregational culture, liturgical development, life cycle ritual, the Jewish healing movement, spirituality, theology, and more.

Copies are available through Gloria in the Temple office. Guest speakers will include Rabbi Lisa Levenberg (November 21, 2019), Rabbi Amy Eilberg (December 19, 2019) and Rabbi Janet Marder (April 28, 2020).
