“We demand an end to Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch’s sexist oversight of the Western Wall.”

Sexism is a Sin.

  1. Er, um, maybe Jewish Women Watching should ‘watch’ the year on the calendar or do a tiny bit of updating:

  2. Why remove an archived project from our website? We keep all our old projects that can be digitized online. Having been around for over 3,000 years, I’ve come to appreciate history.

  3. I find it VERY PROBLEMATIC to use the image of a wild west wanted poster for ANYONE. Remember what these posters often said – dead or alive. Is this how we want to treat a fellow Jew, even one who we dislike, who some despise?

    To be honest, this is:
    a – badly done
    b – inappropriate
    c – not entertaining/funny

    I think this image borders on Sin’at Chinam, and is inappropriate for this site.

  4. FOR ONCE I AGREE WITH BOXTHORN. JWW needs to update that page to reflect the Romney/Ryan/Rightwingnutjob slate in the current election.

  5. That page on the JWW site is part of an archive of their past actions. This was an action they did around the 2004 election.

  6. I maintain my theory that “Jewish Women Watching” consists of a dude named Harvey posting from his mom’s basement. But it’s just a theory.

  8. @Ruth The Moabite it is fine to archive, but your site is completely out of date. Your piece on the Conservative movement, for example, still includes information that was from before the CJLS made decisions about admitting openly gay students to its rabbinical school. I also suspect that, since that piece was published, the number of synagogues in the movement that remain non-egalitarian has continued to shrink.

    Go ahead and archive, but your organization is irresponsible in the way it maintains its website and in creating such an inflammatory poster about a fellow Jew.

  9. The New York Times website is even more out of date! It includes articles such as this one, which refers to “President Truman”. Not only is Truman no longer the president; he’s not even alive! This is irresponsible journalism. Don’t they have fact-checkers?

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
