By Karla Goldman

The author discusses the changes in women's participation in American Jewish religious and cultural life. Although the tension between Jewish realities and American expectations in regard to women's roles is far from resolved, the expansions of women's involvement is growing and the energy growing from this tension will continue to be in play in the future.
