In Praise Of Women Clergy
Tue, 06/11/2013

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.
