Feminism: Giving Birth to a New Judaism

By Martha Ackelsberg

Eugene Borowitz, September 4, 1981

The author discusses the spiritual, educational and familial obstacles that prevent women from fully participating in the Jewish community. Although equal access is a crucial step to overcoming these obstacles, a fundamental transformation of Jewish education, spirituality and familial tradition is necessary in order for the Jewish community to be responsive to and reflective of all its members.
