The Conference

Since 1997 we have brought together thousands of members from the Jewish community to explore halakhic and social issues through the exchange of ideas and resources.
At our conferences, individuals discover new ways to advance the role of women in Orthodoxy, and to provide equal opportunities for the Orthodox community at large.

Speakers Bureau

We are pleased to present the JOFA speakers’ bureau. The purpose of this bureau is to provide a space and resource to hire women scholars for Orthodox settings. We welcome potential candidates to join by submitting your application on the attached page. Please note that while we provide this resource, the content presented is not officially endorsed by JOFA, and those hiring scholars should make sure that the scholar is a good match for your communities. 

Women in Leadership

JOFA advocates for increased opportunities for women in the religious sphere, such as:

  • function as religious, spiritual and halakhic leaders in synagogues and communities

  • assume professional and lay leadership roles in all spheres of communal life

  • teach Talmud and halakha in institutions of higher learning
