What it Means to be a Jewish Woman in the Age of Egalitarianism

By Adina Lewittes

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, January 6, 1995

In the Conservative movement, women have won equality in halachic prayer duties. However, the author argues that it came without considering the impact on other components of a Jewish life that they work to fulfill. While women deserve equity in religion, they should not discount their gender when shaping their religious identities.
