Hear Our Voice: Celebrating Women Rabbis as Liturgists

Wednesday, May 4, 2022 3 Iyar 5782

4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
In 1972, Rabbi Sally J. Priesand became the first woman to be ordained as a rabbi in North America. In the fifty years since, women rabbis have used their voices to transform Jewish prayer. This special event celebrates the groundbreaking contributions that women have made as authors and editors of Reform liturgy. The rabbis behind landmark CCAR Press prayerbooks for Shabbat and High Holy Days, LGBTQ liturgy, and life-cycle rituals will provide an inside look at their writing process and discuss how women’s voices have shaped contemporary prayer.
