As an addendum to your recent coverage on the upcoming graduation ceremony of the first graduates of Yeshivat Maharat, and reactions in the Orthodox community, please note the statement issued several weeks ago by the International Rabbinic Fellowship, the Modern Orthodox rabbinical organization based in New York City.
The statement reads in part that: “The IRF extends its congratulations and good wishes to the first three graduates of Yeshivat Maharat. We wish these talented women success and bracha [blessing] in their work on behalf of Klal Yisrael [the Jewish community].”
The full statement is available at www.internationalrabbinicfellowship.org.
