Female Rabbis generally live the paradox of being agents of change whose job is to teach an unchanging text. They are expected to preserve an ancient tradition which sometimes feels like it has not room for their own female perspective. This panel of five path-breaking female Rabbis: Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist, and the first Orthodox ordained woman to use the title Rabbi, plus the moderator who has forged her Rabbinic path non-denominationally - will share insights, experiences, and ideas for the future. With Rabbis Elyse Goldstein, Lila Kagedan, Tina Grimberg and Jennifer Gorman. Moderated by Rabbi Julia Appel.
