The rejection of women rabbis and "rabbas" by the Rabbinical Council of America is "chilling," feminists tell us.

Can Orthodox women publish books, essay and spiritual insights on religious life, and be a leader in that way? Yes.
Can they do pastoral work, visiting hospitals, teaching bat mitzvahs, and counseling anyone? Yes.
