Rose Goldstein

Rose Goldstein worked to support women’s greater involvement in Jewish ritual life through her education work with United Synagogue and her essential guide to Jewish prayer, A Time to Pray: A Personal Approach to the Jewish Prayer Book. Goldstein earned a master’s degree from Columbia with a thesis on the Sephardi community of New York. As chair of programs and education for the Women’s League of the United Synagogue, she taught and lectured extensively on Jewish prayer and ritual and often led prayer services at Women’s League conventions. In 1972, she published A Time to Pray, an engaging and personal exploration of the prayer book that mingled scholarly insights about the prayers and her own experiences of how different prayers had affected her over the years. In 1968, the Women’s League honored her with their Jubilee Award for her many years of service.
