Women’s Prayer Groups: Coming Soon

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is just to notify readers that my current plans include initiating a discussion of Women’s Prayer Groups. The plan is to post four separate summaries of the positions of the following rabbis (in this order): R. Hershel Schachter, R. Yosef Dov Soloveitchik, R. Yehuda Henkin, R. Eliezer Berkovits & others. Interlaced in my summary will be my own comments and critiques, from which my readers will be easily able to discern my views.

This will hopefully lead to some lively and insightful inter-blog discussions.

However, I will be offline for most of Pesah so this will have to be a longer-term project.
