In 1997, a group of women led by Blu Greenberg, gathered to imagine, plan and execute the first ever International Conference on Feminism and Orthodoxy in New York City. With over 1000 people in attendance, this conference galvanized the community and lead to the creation of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA). Now entering its 25th year, what changes, developments and growth opportunities emerged as a result of this historic gathering?

This conversation will highlight the growth of the prolific educational opportunities of higher Jewish learning for Orthodox women, women’s deeper engagement in synagogue and ritual life, and the groundbreaking leadership roles for women in Orthodox communities that were developed over the last two decades.

What have we learned? What are the opportunities? What were some of the challenges that had to be (and still have to be) overcome? And where do we go from here?
