Monday 9:45 AM–11:00 AM Manhattan Theater

Identity & Responsibility, Interactive, Ritual & Prayer

How does the mechitza (partition or division) and the role of men and women in your Jewish community interact with 21st century cultural and societal norms? Whichever side of the mechitza you sit on, please come and share your thoughts. During this session, the presenter will share research and screen clips from his upcoming documentary film on egalitarian and non-egalitarian Jewish communities.
