Dr. Karla Goldman and Rabbi Laura Geller discuss Regina Jonas

Thursday, March 10, 2022, 8:00–9:00 pm


Women in the Rabbinate is a four-part course presented by the JWA in partnership with Central Synagogue that marks the 50th anniversary of Sally Priesand's ordination as the first woman rabbi in the United States. Join leading scholars and rabbis, including Priesand herself, to learn about the history of women's rabbinic roles before and since that groundbreaking moment.

On March 10th at 8 PM, Dr. Karla Goldman and Rabbi Laura Geller discuss Regina Jonas, the first woman known to have been ordained as a rabbi, who was nearly forgotten after her death at Auschwitz.

JWA presents virtual courses with scholars of Jewish women’s history, delving into the lives, challenges, choices, and innovations of Jews who changed our story. Sessions are designed to stand alone, so attend as many evenings as you’d like! No advanced reading or preparation required. Registrants will receive the Zoom link and access to session recordings.
