Mikvah and Orthodox Leadership

Mikvah and Orthodox Leadership: Let's Discuss

November 9-13, 2014

In the aftermath of recent events, is it enough to be focusing on improving/changing the mikvah and conversion experience, or can we not really fix those without addressing fundamental flaws in the institutional leadership of the Orthodox community? JOFA has convened a group of communal leaders, thinkers, and experts to discuss how we respond to the recent allegations of misconduct by a leading Modern Orthodox Rabbi.
