writing a dissertation on 19th
Century German interpreta-
tions of the Old Testament.
"At Harvard I had become
aware of latent anti-Semitism
in the ways that the Old
Testament was taught. The
Old Testament was looked
upon as anthropological,
while the New Thstament was
taught as theological. The
Jews were equated with law,
while the Christians were
equated with love. I realized
that a lot of scholarship on
the Old Thstament came from
19th Century Germany."

On Being a Jewish
Feminist: A Reader grew out

of Heschel's concern that
most congregations are
"Locked into a social struc-
ture built around the subur-
ban life style, with the result
that may individuals, not on-
ly women, feel alienated. She
talks about the "Noah syn-
drome," where activities are
planned around couples,
those who come in "two-by-
two." By comparison, she ex-
plains, "If I were to enter in-
to an Orthodox group, and
had to sit with the women in
another room, no one would
be looking at me to see if I
brought a date?'
She admits, however, that
synagogues are marvelous
places for elderly, single men
to find companionship by
coming to morning minyan.
"But what about the older
single women who live alone?
There are so many more of
them, and their numbers
don't count in a minyan."
Heschel said she believes
that Jewish laws relating to
women have changed more
radically than have Jewish
attitudes. "At least among
the Orthodox, we're dealing
with tangible issues. Even in
Reform congregations," she

Shalom Synagogue will host

asks, "at the end of the ser-
vice, who gets up to serve the
tea and cookies?"
Heschel, who has lectured
extensively on feminism and
Judaism, is co-chair of the
American Jewish Congress'
Commission on Women's
Equality. She has taught both
religious and women's studies
for several years. She
challenges congregations to
open all roles of participation
equally to women and men.
"No longer can we worry
about what it will do to
Jewish men if women are
counted in a minyan. It's time
to think about what it's doing
to Jewish women to not be
counted in a minyan."
She recalls sadly the in-
dividual who was trying so
hard to give equality to the
sexes, when he agreed, "God
is neither masculine nor
feminine. He is without
gender?'
