Gender Equity in the Rabbinate

By Julie Schonfeld

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2004

Schonfeld reflects on the study "Gender Variation in the Careers of Conservative Rabbis: A Survey of Rabbis Ordained Since 1985," headed by Steven M. Cohen and Judith Schor. The study demonstrates that a gender gap exists in the rabbinate, resulting in inequity in the hiring process, compensation, and the career advancement of women rabbis.
