  4. PJI: Flight to Tel Aviv

    Each time I get ready to travel to Israel, I make sure that my hair dryer will be able to function using Israeli electricity. I need to turn a small switch so that it can be usable in Israel. The computer and other such smart appliances do not need to switch. They only need an adapter to change the shape of the plug.

Women rabbis are among those affected — and their position as religious leaders sometimes makes them particular targets. In a January 24th article in the Jewish Exponent, Barbara Breitman, assistant professor of pastoral counseling at RRC, sheds light on the phenomenon. “When the power invested in a rabbi is embodied by a woman, some people are still very uncomfortable with that and behave in ways that, consciously or unconsciously, are efforts to reduce their power.

    Reconstructing Judaism and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association strongly condemn the recent public remarks made by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
