Jewish Feminism and "New" Jewish Rituals: Imitative or Inventive?

By Elyse Goldstein

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (RRC), Fall 1998

The author discusses the challenges that women in the rabbinate face when being asked to adapt age-old traditions to a more contemporary reality while at the same time being asked to create new rituals to fill the void where an absence is palpable- around birth, fertility and infertility, menstruation and menopause, and growing old.
