This past Wednesday, Julie Schoenfeld was chosen to become the first female rabbi to lead a rabbinical association, serving in the chief executive position. She will be the new executive vice president of the Rabbinical Assembly, the Conservative movement’s rabbinic group. The current executive Vice president, Rabbi Joel Meyers, will step down July 1.
Almost makes me think that the Conservative movement can be saved. If the election goes well this week, I could be thinking in terms of a whole new era of hope before us….Trying to overcome my usual cynicism…
