Featuring: Maharats Ruth Balinsky Friedman, Rachel Kohl Finegold, Rori Picker Neiss, and Abby Brown Scheier

Moderated by Rachel Lieberman

Four Maharats are nearing the end of their first year in the field as female Orthodox clergy - how did it go? Panelists will reflect on inspiring, challenging, and surprising moments. How has the title "Maharat" impacted their work and relationships? Do they connect differently with male and female congregants? How have they been received by the broader Jewish and secular community? Where do they find mentors and support networks? And of course - what advice do they have for congregations who are thinking of hiring a Maharat?
