In the few short decades since rabbinical schools began ordaining women, women rabbis have transformed Jewish life around the world. In this joyful and spirited evening, moderated by Dr. Judith Rosenbaum of the Jewish Women’s Archive, we will hear from five remarkable rabbis, Sharon Cohen Anisfeld, Angela Warnick Buchdahl, Dianne Cohler-Esses, Laura Geller, and Claudia Kreiman, who will reflect on their roles and experiences as spiritual guides, scholars, Jewish communal leaders, social activists, healers, and teachers. We will also learn about the challenges and blessings they’ve encountered along the way, and their visions for the future.
