Survey Tracks Jobs
Held By Women Rabbis

New York (JTA) — Four of
the nine woman ordained as
Reform rabbis last summer
have been appointed assist-
ant rabbis and the two women
ordained as Reconstructionist
rabbis have been placed as
solo rabbis, according to an
annual survey of such
placements released last
week.

Solo rabbis is the term used
to describe spiritual leaders of
congregations which are too
small to need or afford more
than one rabbi.

Donna Adler of Brookline,
Mass. has been named assist-
ant rabbi at Beth Israel Con-
gregation in Hamilton, Ohio;
Beth Davidson of Sag Harbor,
NY has been appointed assis-
tant rabbi at Congregation
Ohabai Sholom in Nashville;
Lynn Goldstein of
Philadelphia has been ap-
pointed assistant rabbi at
Temple Beth Am in Miami;
and Sue Ann Wasserman of
Pound Ridge, NY has been
appointed assistant rabbi at
the Temple in Atlanta, Ga.
Barbara Penzner of Lea-
wood, Kan. and Amy Leven-
son of Vineland, NJ are the
solo rabbis.* Penzner is at the
Greater Boston Reconstruc-
tionist Havurah and Leven-
son is at the B'nai Israel

Reconstructionist Congrega-
tion in South Bend, Ind. Two
of the newly-ordained women
Reform rabbis are attending
graduate schools.

The total of Reform women
rabbis ordained since Sally
Preisand becomes the first
woman rabbi in American
history in 1972 is 111. The
number of women ordained as
Reconstructionist rabbis is
30, for a total of 141 women
rabbis ordained since the
process began.

Although two women were
ordained as Conservative rab-
bis, one in 1985 and one in
1986, they were exceptional
situations, stemming in part
from a decade-long struggle
in the Conservative move-
ment over ordaining women.
Amy Eilberg of Blooming-
ston, Ind. was ordained as the
first woman Conservative
rabbi in 1985 and Nina
Beiber Feinstein was ordain-
ed in 1986.

Women will be returning to
the Conservative, Reform and
Reconstructionist seminaries
when studies are resumed for
the 1987-88 academic year,
indicating that entry of
women into the ranks of the
American rabbinate can be
expected to continue.

Succot Prayer Book
Misprint Discovered

New York (JTA) — A nation-
wide alert to four misprinted
lines in its latest prayerbook
has been issued by Mesorah
Publications of Brooklyn.
Mesorah, which publishes the
ArtScroll series of English
translations of Judaica
classics, says that four lines in
its new Succoth machzor
went unnoticed until two days
before the holiday, too late to
be recalled, it was reported
last Monday.
The four misprinted lines
appear at a critical place in
the "Amidah" silent prayer,
the "Shmoneh Esray," to be
said during the holiday's- in-
termediate days of Chol
HaMoed. The mistaken lines
in the "Yaale VeYavo" section
of the prayer refer to the end
of the holiday, Shmini
Atzereth, instead of the in-
termediate days of Succoth,
as they should.
Jewish law requires that if
these four lines are not
recited correctly they must be
repeated.

Mesorah says the nation-
wide alert was deemed neces-
sary because the errors are
subtle and thus likely to be
overlooked by many read-
ers.
In addition, several other
errors, described as "minor
flaws," were also discovered in
the machzor, including the in-
advertent printing of two
pages twice in one of the
several repetitions of the
"Hallel" prayer. This error,
say the publishers, would be
obvious to the worshipper.
The correct text of the prayer
appears elsewhere in the
machzor.
Several thousand copies of
the 1,300-page machzor were
distributed in advance of the
holiday by Jewish schools, as
well as in bookstore sales. As
soon as the errors were discov-
ered, Mesorah sent pres-
sure-sensitive labels with ap-
propriate replacement text
for the misprinted lines via
air express to Jewish book-
stores
