Here are highlights with Schechter :

  • Prof. Alice Shalvi  will teach at each of the three regional study days, focusing on her recent memoir, “Never a Native.” She will teach the class together with Rabbi Nathalie Lastreger. Prof. Shalvi will  focus on sections from her memoir, which echo the theme of “Women’s Voices Changing the Discourse: Bible to Today” and Rabbi Lastreger will examine the halakhah related to this issue.
  • Rabbi Amy Levin, the second woman graduate of the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary, will clarify how the Conservative/Masorti Movement’s Committee on Halakhah operates and will focus on some current issues regarding the role of women.
  • For the first time, Prof. Bat-Sheva Margalit Stern will be teaching at the Women’s Study days.  Her lecture will focus on the writings of Jewish women in Pre-State Israel that influenced a change in attitude towards the role of women.
