In the latest in a series of breakthroughs in the realm of religious leadership by Orthodox women, Dr. Jennie Rosenfeld, a communal religious leader in Efrat, has been appointed director of the rabbinical court for property claims in that municipal region. […]
As court administrator, Rosenfeld’s responsibilities will include, among others: providing assistance and information to parties of a suit, accepting written documents and other material relevant to the case, and arranging hearings. […]
Rosenfeld will not be serving as a rabbinical judge on the court, but is not ruling out the possibility for the future.
Neither is Efrat’s municipal chief rabbi Shlomo Riskin, who appointed Rosenfeld to her new position.
