Feedback form is now closed.
In the past, Jewish religious authority resided solely with men. Women who sought to lead or set new agendas had little chance of success. Nonetheless, we have stories of deeply religious women who understood how to navigate authority and subversively claim leadership roles that were transformative for their communities and for the Jewish world. Through examining women from Yalta to Sarah Schneirer, we will draw conclusions about the nature of leadership and authority in Jewish communal life.
