More From the Religious Feminist Scene in Israel

Feministihilchatikenes

I have written before about different trends in Israeli religious feminism, and for those who will be in Jerusalem tomorrow there will be a day of learning at Beit Morasha sponsored by the Facebook group Halakhic Feminists. It will be possible to watch the proceedings live on their Facebook page, and they intend upload the lectures to Youtube at some point in the future.

One Response to “More From the Religious Feminist Scene in Israel”

  1. 1
    DF:

    They can have all the conferences they want – halacha is diametrically opposed to feminism. At best (from the feminist perspective) the halacha clearly and unmistakably says women are not equal to or the same as men. At worst (from the same perspective) it says they are inferior. Only someone ignorant of the full halachic corpus, and who focuses on micro-issues like tefillin or prayer, could possibly assert otherwise. Statements reflecting the differences or inferiority of women are laced through and through halacha, from shas to shulchan aruch and beyond. You cannot be a “halachic feminist” unless your radically redefine one or both of those words. Which, essentially, makes it all meaningless.
