Council Disavows
Cohen Statement
on Women Rabbis

NEW YORK — Rabbi Sol
Roth, president of the Rab-
binical Council of America
(Orthodox), criticized Dr.
Gershon Cohen, chancelor
of the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America, re-
garding his statement on
the ordination of women in
the modern Orthodox
movement.
According to Rabbi Roth,
"The declaration of Dr. Co-
hen, to the effect that the
ordination of women in the
modern Orthodox move-
ment is only a matter of
time, is unfortunate and
misguided. Rabbi Roth also
said that "Dr. Cohen is not a
spokesman for Orthodoxy
and the commitment of Or-
thodox rabbis to the
Halakha is such that it is
inconceivable that such a
radical departure from
Jewish tradition would be
permitted."

The Bible goes equally to
the cottage of the peasant,
and the palace of the king.
