This week I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Allison Josephs, AKA Jew in the City, for her radio show on the Nachum Segal Network.
Allison had some great questions about the development of my ideas, as well as about my new book Circle, Arrow, Spiral: Exploring Gender in Judaism.
At one point she noted that many outside the Orthodox Jewish world (and some within it) feel that Judaism discriminates against women. When challenged with this assertion, traditional Jews will often contend that “women are different but equal” in our religion.
While on some levels that is true, in the interview I explain how the “different but equal” theory doesn’t capture the real issues.
To hear Allison and me discuss this and other juicy topics, listen to the interview.
