Now, let's talk about it.

JOFA is hosting a panel event to produce a diverse, nuanced, and productive conversation in our Orthodox feminist community — one that many of us are craving to have in person and off social media. The goal is not to debate, but rather to engage with one another to promote productive dialogue on important issues and to educate ourselves on the different sides of this contentious topic. We will explore questions relating to leadership expectations, litmus tests, privilege, intersectionality, and more, in this panel of Jewish women.

All are welcome to attend, regardless of gender identity, religion, race, etc. However, please note that the event was framed for JOFA's Jewish Orthodox Feminist audience. The space is wheelchair-accessable.
