Conference on Gender, Religion and Society (May 21-22, 2006):

In May, the Fanya Gottesfeld Heller Center in coordination with the Gewurz center for Gender Studies sponsored a major international conference entitled “Gender, Religion and Society”. The conference brought together dozens of speakers from the academic and religious world, with the aim of addressing how gender and religion merge together in today's society. The aim of the conference was to analyze the dialogue between feminist theories and contemporary religions – their theologies, traditions, practices, and social institutions. Many speakers focused on the position of Jewish women in society.
