ON THE ORDINATION OF WOMEN AS RABBIS: POSITION PAPERS OF THE FACULTY OF THE JEWISH THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY OF AMERICA ["NOT FOR PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION"]

New York: Jewish Theological Seminary of America, 1983. Item #41944

8vo; 1st edition. Original Blue paper wrappers, 4to. Various pagings [ca. 400 pages]. Mostly in English, with some Hebrew. "These papers are for information only; they are not for publication or distribution. Some of them are not in their final form and will require revision." Presumably this collection of "not for distribution" position papers were published only for a small coterie of leaders and scholars within the conservative movement; the low OCLC count (9 in 2022) would seem to reflect this.
