Another Example of Halakhic Evoution in Action

Back in 1990, one of my students whose mother was a Reform rabbi, asked me if I ever thought there would be Orthodox woman rabbis.  I answered it would probably happen in about 25 years.

In the spirit of the high holidays I publicly apologize to that student for being off by about 1 year.

One of the articles that motivated me to make that prediction was Rabbi Saul Berman’s  ‘Status of Women in Halakhic Judaism’  published in 1973.

Now, ,someone just sent me a link to an article on his Nov., 2014 update to his original article from Jewish Link of NJ.  You can hear it here at YU Torah Online

About Sidney Slivko

There are so many things I enjoy doing -- teaching, reading, editing, art, networking, computers -- and thank God, I am able to integrate all of them. I am one of the original Jewish Studies teachers to use computer technology and multi-media in Jewish education (Mishna-mation, Hypertext Talmud, Guided Social Simulations & gaming for learning Jewish values, media and drama). I got into this because that's where the students were, and I was fortunate to have principals and school heads that believed in me and allowed me to use my creativity to reach them. Since coming to Israel in 1997 as a fellow in the Melton Senior Educators' Program, I have been expanding my apps and my reach, and still continue to look for new and creative ways to use the media.
