08/03/2010

 The woman at the center of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale’s historic Kabbalat Shabbat last week has made history before.

Lamelle Ryman, who became the first female — as far as is known — to lead the preliminary Friday evening service at an Orthodox synagogue in the United States, was the first woman, in 1996, to head the student government at Harvard University.

Ryman, an active member of the Hebrew Institute, is the founder of Journeymama.net, an online resource center for mothers and expectant mothers.

Lamelle Ryman led Kabbalat Shabbat last weekend at HIR.
