Endthoughts: Opening the Gates of the Synagogue

By Joanne Greenberg

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, September 2, 1994

Young, unmarried women at three congregations were shunned when they attempted to attend High Holidays, especially as nonmembers. Congregations not only miss out on a hugely important demographic when they refuse to help these women, but it is decidedly un-Jewish of them to exclude anyone who needs a place during the Holidays.
