Raising Up the Light, 2010

Raising Up the Light, 2010

Several hundred people gathered at Temple Reyim in Newton, MA on Monday, December 6, 2010, the sixth night of Hanukkah, to celebrate four pioneering women: Sally Priesand, Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, Amy Eilberg, and Sara Hurwitz, the first-ordained North American Reform, Reconstructionist, and Conservative women rabbis and open Orthodox rabba, respectively. Organized by the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts and co-sponsored by JWA and the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, the program began with over 30 women rabbis on the bima while the menorah was lit. Each of the four special guests then spoke about her career; a lively discussion followed.
