Henceforth, she may function as a Rebitzin in her own name and of her own right, and not merely as the wife of a ‘He-rabbi. ’ For the Central Conference of American Rabbis decided at its last convention that ‘In view of Jewish teachings and in keeping with the spirit of our age, women cannot be denied the privilege of ordination as rabbis. ’” SUBJECT(S) : Female rabbis, Jewish women, Women leadership.
