Reports are Misleading: Yes Orthodox Women Can Be Ordained Rabbis

It has been reported that after objections from many Orthodox Rabbis, unfortunately that Rabbi Avi Weiss has agreed not to ordain Orthodox women with the title Rabba. He will still grant them the title Maharat.

We want to make sure that Orthodox women know that they can still be ordained rabbis with the full title - not maharats or rabbas - at the following serious theological seminaries - which represent the great majority of America's Jews and where they will be welcomed with opened arms.
Good luck on your applications, future rabbis!

How do you consider these seminaries as serious alternatives for Orthodox women?

for a woman with a calling to serve a career in the clergy, they offer a quality education and a degree with the title rabbi.
