In the 21st century, many of my colleagues and students catch the threads of the old debate, asking how the values and control of influential men – and, especially, their ideas about women – have shaped the way we think about Jewish community and values. It is a call to re-evaluate their research, analyses and conclusions, to determine whether and how their guidance has been compromised by what we now know about their personal attitudes toward women.
In addition to societal challenges and violence, we witnessed great hope in the souls of the people who fight for human and equal rights in Israel. Their hope was not only contagious, it was concrete.
