‘Counting Toward Sinai’
OU’s Women’s Initiative podcasts include local teachers as they look toward Shavuot
Some things don’t change. Like the omer, the 49 days that lead from the second evening of Pesach to Shavuot; from the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt to Mount Sinai, at Shavuot, when they received the Torah.
Some things do change, bit at a time. Like the understanding of women’s scholarship in the Orthodox Jewish world, which has evolved to the point where women’s scholarship is honored and women are sought out as teachers, mainly but not exclusively of other women.
