Living Room Lectures is a series of monthly presentations delivered to your living room through your device screen.  Molli Spalter presents the May 2021 Living Room Lecture:

Judaism and Feminism

The Stories We Tell: Pulling Back the Veil on Judaism and Feminism

Many contemporary Jewish practices are indebted to feminist interventions. Women’s inclusion in prayer services and ordination, for instance, would have been impossible without the strides made by 20th and 21st century feminist movements. While the feminist impact on the public aspects of Jewish law and practice are well known, feminism has influenced day-to-day Jewish life in innumerable ways. This class will discuss two key feminist concepts: “the personal is political” and consciousness raising, to examine how contemporary American Judaism has been influenced by those ideas.
