Me'orot Program Discusses Women's Issues

YCT's Me'orot program brought in four outside speakers recently to discuss about women for Orthodoxy. Last Tuesday, Dr. Judith Plaskow spoke about challenges that the non-Orthodox movements have presented to the Orthodox movement in terms of women, and Devorah Zlochower spoke about halakhic problems for women within Orthodoxy vis-a-vis the status quo. Last night, Rivka Haut spoke about Women of the Wall, as well as women's prayer groups, while Lisa Schlaff spoke about the Darchei Noam minyan on the upper west side of Manhattan. (The first-year students, as part of their/our Modern Orthodoxy class were in attendance, as well.)
