    (15) The Gaza War, Women, and Jewish Law

    (15) The Gaza War, Women, and Jewish Law

    Dr. Susan Weiss, founder and director of the Center for Women’s Justice, interviews podcast host and to'enet rabbanit Rivkah Lubitch about how Jewish law might affect women in the aftermath of the Gaza war. Susan and Rivkah talk about women who might not be able to get divorced (agunot); women who might need their brother-in-law’s permission to remarry (halitzah); and women who may — or may not — have been raped, and how that affects their relationships. Who might be affected adversely by Jewish law? Who might be absolved? How, if at all, will the rabbis resolve the issues raised? Will there be a systemic solution for all the cases that arise, or will each case be decided on its own? And what does the State have to do with it?

    (12) Arab Women in Israel after October 7th

    (12) Arab Women in Israel after October 7th

    Celia Jawabreh, a feminist social activist and educator in the Arab-Israeli community, has a very painful and candid conversation with us. She tells what it is like to grow up as a woman in a patriarchal religious society, and especially how Arab women (and men) are faring since the 7th of October. We learn what it is like to be identified in public as an Arab and having Israeli Jews suspect her as being pro-Hamas. She described how shocked Israeli Arabs were by what happened on the 7th of October, and their pain at being constantly under suspicion.
