Elana Sztokman To Leave Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance

Elana Sztokman is leaving the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance after a year and a half as executive director.

“It is a mutual parting of the ways,” she told the Forward. She would not elaborate on the reason for her departure, saying that her separation contract prohibits her from talking about the split.

Sztokman said she is exploring next steps, but would not go into detail about what the future holds for her. “There will be news, god willing in the coming months, about new directions for Orthodox feminism and Jewish feminism,” she said.

She will be leaving the organization in three weeks, but will remain on in a consultancy role.

Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance was founded by pioneering feminist Blu Greenberg two decades ago.
