More Jewish women are taking leadership roles in Europe, reports Toby Axelrod (Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Aug. 6).
Female rabbis have held high positions in several countries of Western and Eastern Europe. One currently heads the Central Council of Jews in Germany. While the number of women on such positions is still small—the German case being an exception—there is a growing feeling that opportunities are opening for those willing to seize them.
Changes were slow in coming, but pace is now picking up.
