A Step for Forward for Orthodox Women!


The Hadassah Foundation attended the inaugural ordination ceremony at Yeshivat Maharat, the first institution to train Orthodox women for religious leadership.   All three women ordained yesterday have jobs--mazel tov!  And a hearty mazel tov to Rabbi Sara Hurwitz, Yeshivat Maharat's Dean and this year's winner of the Foundation's Tannenbaum Prize--she was positively kvelling yesterday.  

Attendees included Rabbi Jackie Koch Ellenson, the former Board Chair of the Hadassah Foundation; her husband, Rabbi David Ellenson, the President of Hebrew Union College--Jewish Institute of Religion; and Rabbi Sally Priesand, the first woman to be ordained by HUC.
