Women celebrating Daf Yomi

TALMUD WATCH: Women's group brings equality to Talmud study (Danny Zaken, Al-Monitor). Hadran celebrated the participation of women in the latest Daf Yomi cycle.
The Jan. 5 gathering in Jerusalem, attended by over 3,000 women, was a show of power and strength by religious women from almost every social sector, ranging from relatively liberal ultra-Orthodox women to women associated with the conservative movement. Some wore headscarves, while others walked around in jeans and t-shirts. The term “feminism” was conspicuously absent. On the contrary, the organizers wanted to send the message that Talmud study is not the result of a struggle but the natural continuation of a legacy of Torah study across Jewish history.
