On Women's Prayer Groups: a Response

By Yitzchak A. Sladowsky

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, April 4, 1997

Yitzchak A. Sladowsky responds to Alan Yuter's article in this issue of Sh'ma regarding a decision made by Vaad Harabonim of Queens, NY to prohibit women's prayer groups. Sladowsky believes that the Vaad had legitimate power to make such a decision, and that Yuter's distinction between cultural tradition and written law is not correct.
