Discussion with Rabbi Dorsch and Rabbi Lewis: "How we got to Equal prayer rights for Women"

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 1 Av 5780

9:00 AM - 11:00 AMVirtual
Congregation Etz Chaim’s complete embrace of women’s equal prayer rights happened quietly last Rosh Hashanah when b’not kohanim (“daughters of kohanim,” women whose fathers are/were descendants of the ancient priestly caste) joined with b’nai kohanim (sons of kohanim) to bestow the priestly blessing upon our congregation.
 
How did our rabbis – Rabbi Dorsch and, before him, Rabbi Lewis – move Etz Chaim to this point? On Rosh Chodesh Av, Wednesday, July 22, at 9:00 a.m., each rabbi will talk about their personal journeys to egalitarianism and the people who played a part in those journeys.
 
We also invite all attendees who experienced an “aha” moment in similar journeys to share their experiences.
