This session looks at the place of Jewish women in Judaism historically and halachically. Topics include the mechitza, minyan, home vs. synagogue, sexuality, female spirituality and more.

This session provides an opportunity to look into our holy texts, consider historical contexts and challenge Post-modern criticisms of Judaism.
