(Could 3, 2021 / JNS) Rabbanit Shira Marili Mirvis made historical past this week by changing into the primary lady in Israel to function an Orthodox synagogue’s sole non secular chief.
The Shirat Tamar Synagogue in Efrat has appointed Mirvis as its non secular chief and authority on Jewish regulation. Whereas up to now Orthodox girls have been appointed as non secular leaders in Orthodox synagogues, they’ve all the time served alongside a male rabbi, based on The Jerusalem Submit.
The synagogue’s board of administration known as Mirvis’s appointment “a transparent recognition of her outstanding accomplishments as a instructor and communal chief. … We’re assured that she is going to proceed to function a real function mannequin.”
Mirvis stated in a press release to the press, “I’m deeply grateful to the Shirat Tamar neighborhood for giving me this chance which I see as a pure continuation of my function as a instructor and communal chief. My honest prayer is that Hashem [God] will information and strengthen me on this necessary function, enabling me to unfold the phrase of Torah.”
Mirvis can be graduating in June from a five-year course on the Susi Bradfield Ladies’s Institute of Halakhic Management (WIHL) at Ohr Torah Stone’s Midreshet Lindenbaum. Graduates of the college are licensed as “non secular leaders” and morot hora’ah, which interprets in English to girls who’re approved to offer steerage in points pertaining to Jewish regulation.
The Efrat resident teaches a weekly Talmud weblog and is an adjudicator of issues associated to Jewish regulation for individuals around the globe, reported The Jerusalem Submit.
