Sharon Weiss-Greenberg is the Executive Director of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance. She organized a campaign against Rabbi Steven Pruzansky of Bnai Yeshurun, an Orthodox synagogue in New Jersey, to force the rabbi to withdraw from an educational conference, Building Strong Families, at the synagogue.
“Pruzansky has been saying many wrong, sexist, hateful, racist, inciting things for years, but this is the straw that has broken the camel’s back. More needs to happen. I don’t think he should be the rabbi of a shul with hundreds of families, half women. I don’t think he speaks to the values of the Jewish people or of Orthodox Judaism. He’s been a chilul Hashem [desecration of God’s name] for a long time.”
