I think this might be my first post tagged religion. In this article from the Jerusalem Post, Non-Orthodox men less connected than women, based on a study conducted at Brandeis, these phrases are priceless:
ethnic capital - as in the inverstment of huamn capital in ethnic practices and the maintenance thereof.
"Ima on the bima" (Rock on MOM!!!)- as in the presence of women on the podium in synagogue. While I have found some of the liturgical chynages of the conservative movement a little jarring in the moment, I more or less agree with their message of egalitarian worship. My mom never had a bat mitzvah, and she is studying Hebrew so she can have one . My parents' congregation just hired a woman as Rabbi, and she's great. So I say this is a great trend.
peoplehood- I have no idea what a peoplehood is. Wait, is it like chairperson? So instead of manhood or womanhood it's peoplehood? Amazing.
