Women’s Rights and Religious Ritual – Part I


The notion of equality and egalitarianism calls for equal representation of all people in all areas of life. Yet the Torah explicitly exempts women from a number of mitzvah obligations, many of which are highly visible in the synagogue and community setting.

  • Part I-Understanding the Exemption: Does this exemption apply only to those mitzvos whose fulfillment is restricted to particular times? Does the unique calling of a Jewish woman impact the scope of her mitzvah obligations?

    Is there any substance to the claim ascribing this dispensation to the woman’s “higher level of holiness”? Is this sourced in traditional Torah scholarship?
