Girls just wanna do mitzvas: An exploration of Egalitarianism in Judaism
Oct 6 @ 5:30 pm

The law body of the Conservative movement passed a teshuva, legal opinion, this spring to equally obligate women in all mitzvot. We will talk about what this shift means for us, and speak about how women’s obligation in mitzvot has
shifted and morphed since the start of the Conservative movement.
Along the way we will speak about what this means for us and how women
being equally obligated affects us as men and women.
