Finding a Place and a Voice

By Susie Kessler

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, March 20, 1998

The author recalls growing up in a Conservative synagogue that was not openly sexist, yet her education as a girl was not the same as the boys' and her bat mitzvah did not include reading from the Torah. Consequently she sought continued education as an adult, which has proved to enrich her desire to live Jewishly and to participate in the Jewish community.
