We Need Women Conservative Rabbis

By Harold M. Schulweis

Eugene Borowitz, March 30, 1979

A review of the decisions of the Conservative Law Committee these last decades indicates that the issue of ordination before the Rabbinical Assembly is not some casual or abrupt intrusion into the stream of Conservative Jewish thought. The admission of qualified women who seek to study at the feet of the masters of our tradition and to translate their learning into teaching and spiritual leadership promises to add, increase and include irreplaceable talent in our midst.
