Chochmat Nashim combats extremism and the exclusion of women throughout the Orthodox community and Israeli society. Stemming from a false definition of modesty, these trends cause financial, emotional and health damage to Jewish women.
We use new and traditional media and a network of individuals and organizations, to pushback the slide to extremism.
Specifically, we target the increasing erasing of women from publications, the exclusion of women from policy making decisions, poor health due to hyper-modesty, and the damage to the Jewish community as a result of these trends. We do this by identifying the issues, articulating them to wide audiences and providing opportunities to mobilize communities toward solutions.
Our work can be seen in The Times of Israel, The Jerusalem Post, The Forward, The UK Jewish Chronicle, Kipa.co.il, our JewishCoffeeHouse.com podcast, and here on our site.
