2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the ordination of Sally J. Priesand, the first woman publicly ordained as a rabbi. Yet, her groundbreaking ordination, which opened the door for subsequent generations of women, was preceded by the impactful lives of other, lesser-known female scholars and community leaders. In this four-session adult education series, we will spotlight a few of the significant women from the 1500's to the early modern period who held quasi-rabbinic status in their communities; compare and contrast the ordinations of Rabbis Sally Priesand and Regina Jonas (Who? Come find out!); explore the challenges faced by the first generation of women in the rabbinate; and reflect on how women's leadership has changed the rabbinate and the Jewish community as a whole.

We will be joined by one of our own firsts, Rabbi Debra Hachen, on November 4. The 4-part series runs from October 21-Nov 11. On November 18 we are delighted to have the first woman to be ordained by our movement, Rabbi Sally Priesand, joining us via Zoom to share her experiences with us in a special program sponsored by the CBS Sisterhood.

The 4-session course will be recorded and made available to all CBS members and any others who register but miss a session.
