In this episode of the Religious Feminism interview series, Bat Sheva Marcus, President of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA) and Sharon Weiss-Greenberg, Executive Director of JOFA, tell us about how a generation of educated Jewish women are challenging gendered constraints that are based in tradition, not text, and how the questions about women are evolving in their communities, even among the ultra-orthodox.
