Women's Roundtable: The Rabba Debacle and the Yenta's Changing Face

The first in a series of podcasts jointly produced by the Forward’s Sisterhood blog and the Jewish feminist magazine Lilith features Forward and Lilith staffers discussing a range of Jewish women’s issues. On the agenda: the debate over what Orthodox women serving in rabbinic roles should be called, Jewish women in the business of advice, and food’s growing importance in Jewish dating and mating rituals. Forward editor Jane Eisner, Lilith editor Susan Weidman Schneider and Lilith associate editor Melanie Weiss join The Sisterhood’s Gabrielle Birkner in the Forward studio.
