Bringing ourselves to the table

Does being a woman influence your understanding of Torah and the way you incorporate its teachings into your life?

On March 13, four Jewish educators, three of them rabbis, all women, will explore these and similar questions in a symposium at Temple Emanuel of the Pascack Valley.

The four are linked not only by the primacy of Jewish teachings in their work but also by their connection to the Woodcliff Lake synagogue. Rabbi Loren Monosov is its religious leader, Rabbi Shelley Kniaz is its director of congregational education, Rabbi Leana Moritt is the founder and rabbinic director of Thresholds and has conducted many keruv activities at the shul, and veteran Jewish educator Miriam Gray spent many years furthering Jewish education at Temple Emanuel.

The four will come together in a program conceived by Alayne Pick, chair of the shul’s Keruv Committee for Community Engagement and one of the chairs of its continuing education committee. It will be based on a book “that really spoke to Alayne,” Rabbi Monosov said.
