Coverage from Around the Web
Regina Jonas was the first woman ordained as a rabbi, in Berlin in 1935. She served the Jewish communities of Berlin and, after her deportation there, the Theresienstadt concentration camp. But after her death in Auschwitz, Jonas was forgotten, unmentioned even by those survivors who had known and worked with her. It was only after the fall of the Berlin Wall that her papers—and her story—came to light again. To mark the 70th anniversary of her death, a group of pioneering American Jewish women rabbis and scholars traveled to Europe to learn about and commemorate her legacy. Read coverage of their remarkable journey from around the web.
