Join us for the annual Henry Samuel Levinson Lecture:

Women in Israeli Society: The Army, The Rabbis, and Me

By Linda Gradstein, award-winning journalist

While Israel is widely admired for including women in army service and for being among the first countries to elect a female Prime Minister, Israeli women face many of the same challenges as females worldwide as well as issues unique to Israel. In this talk, Gradstein addresses the issues as she has seen and lived them: from her own experiences with rabbinic courts to her daughter’s army service and beyond.
