The Status of Women in Jewish Law
By David Golinkin
Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies
413 pages; $25

Can women wear tefillin? Can they recite Kaddish, lead prayers and sing in front of men? How about serving as rabbis and ruling on halachic matters? If you ask Rabbi David Golinkin – who, as one of the leading halachic authorities of the Conservative (Masorti) Movement in Israel, has heard these questions many times and included them in his book The Status of Women in Jewish Law: Responsa – the answer is a thoroughly researched “yes.”
