It’s been a year since JOFA joined the Jewish Week and we wanted to share with you all the ways in which JOFA’s blog has given voice to the Jewish community. From responding to the OU’s Ban on Female Clergy in February and the Rabbanut’s “Blacklist” of American rabbis this summer, to being a space for women to share their experiences with abuse and infertility, JOFA’s blog has been changing our communal discourse, one blog post at a time.
