Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance Expands to U.K.

from The Jewish Chronicle (U.K.):

How to be an Orthodox Jew – and a feminist too

A respected American programme catering to Orthodox Jewish women is to launch in the UK in the new year.

The Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance will be run by London-based Dina Brawer in an attempt to boost the education and resources on offer to a new generation of Orthodox women.

Set up 15 years ago in America to “expand the spiritual, ritual, intellectual, and political opportunities for women in the framework of halachah”, JOFA is now also active in Israel, where Mrs Brawer first encountered it.
