Supporting Female Leadership

At B'nai David-Judea, as part of our core mission, we work to create learning and leadership opportunities for women and girls at every level of our shul. From Teen Girls’ Tefillah, to our Shirat Chana services, we empower both the men and the women of our Orthodox community to deepen their connection to God, Torah, Mitzvot, and Community. Help us continue to offer these opportunities this year and in years to come.

Female Clergy - We were blessed to have Rabbanit Alissa Thomas-Newborn as part of our clergy staff for many years and are looking forward to having another female clergy person again soon. 

Leadership and Education - We continually seek out and encourage women's scholarship and learning, including hosting women scholars as scholars in residence, guest lecturers and teachers. Women routinely serve as officers, chairs of committees, and presidents of the board.

Shirat Chana - Our Women's Tefillah Service meets regularly to celebrate b'not mitzvah, Purim, Simchat Torah and other holidays and special occasions. Women lead Tefillah, read from the Torah, and learn together, within the Halachic framework Women's Tefillah,

Teen Girls' Tefillah - Similar to our Shirat Chana service, this women's only service allows teen girls to develop and shine in the areas of Tefillah, Torah reading, and teaching. It meets 4 times a year on Shabbat mornings.

Teen Girls' Coffee Club - Twice a month, our teen girls meet on Shabbat morning to daven together, schmooze, and learn Torah, before joining our Teen Minyan.

Seder Nashim - Our women's-only discussion group meets four times in the spring and explores different topics of relevance to modern Orthodox women. All adult women are welcome.
