"Where is it Written?"

    It was a jaw-dropping moment this summer. They went ahead and ordained an orthodox Jewish female Rabbi in New York. What a first! Her name is Sara Hurwitz and thanks to Rabbi and teacher Avi Weiss, she is a full-fledged Rabbi, although the title officially given to her is “Rabba.”  It’s truly wonderful that this happened and hopefully it will happen again. If you want to read more, an article about Ms. Hurwitz was published this past July in New York Magazine, here....more
