THE FOUR FIRSTS: ** SOLD OUT ** A fascinating forum featuring the four first female rabbis ordained in their branches of Judaism
Temple Sinai presents a special evening spotlighting four fascinating women who were the first female rabbis ordained in their branches of Judaism-
Reform, Reconstructionist, Conservative and Orthodox.

Moderated by Temple Sinai's Rabbi Annie Belford, the panel discussion will explore the experiences and challenges of these courageous pioneers in their journey to become spiritual leaders in Judaism.  The program will include a question and answer period.

A dessert reception with the Rabbis will immediately follow the program for sponsors at the Woman of Valor, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel & Leah Levels.

Introducing the Rabbis-

Rabbi Sally J. Priesand, Reform (1972)
America's first female rabbi, Rabbi Sally was ordained in 1972, by Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Despite significant media attention upon her ordination, many synagogues refused to even interview her simply because she was a woman.

Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, Reconstructionist (1974)
When Sandy Sasso entered the seminary in 1969, there were no female Rabbis. Five years later she became only the third woman in Jewish history to be ordained as a Rabbi.

Rabbi Amy Eilberg, Conservative (1985)
After years of heated debate, the Conservative movement gave approval in 1983 to allow women to become Rabbis.  Two years later, Amy Eilberg became the first woman to be ordained as a Conservative Rabbi.

Rabba Sara Hurwitz, Orthodox (2009)
In 2009, Sara Hurwitz became the first Orthodox woman to be officially ordained in Judaism.  She was given the title "Raba" in January 2010, sparking controversy within the Orthodox community.
