June Hadassah Event To Take On Feminism, Zionism

As part of Hadassah’s “Defining Zionism in the 21st Century” series, there’s going to be a June 8 event called “Feminism & Zionism: Exploring Recent Tensions,” at the Town & Village Synagogue in New York. Participants include Emily Shire and Sharon Weiss-Greenberg, so the event promises to be thought-provoking and generally wonderful.

I can’t imagine the Sisterhood readership needs much convincing on the importance of feminism or Zionism as topics for discussion. But for background on how the two topics intersect these days, check out Emily Shire’s Sisterhood piece and New York Times op-ed from March.

Phoebe Maltz Bovy edits the Sisterhood, and can be reached at bovy@forward.com. She is the author of “The Perils Of ‘Privilege’”, from St. Martin’s Press. Follow her on Twitter, @tweetertation
