A Modern Heroine

27 Feb

Recently, this lady Ruth Calderon – became both a member of Knesset as a member of the Yesh Atid party, and a star in my eyes and the eyes of many people (especially women people) that I know. Ruth Calderon is a Talmud scholar who has wonderful ideas and things to say about bringing Judaism back to the people of Israel, taking it back from those who have hijacked it for themselves and for their own means (we’re looking at you, Rabbanut crazy heads.) I am particularly excited to have this person in our government! If you haven’t seen her maiden speech in the Knesset yet, here it is with subtitles, along with a really interesting piece on her in today’s Tablet mag, by Daniella Cheslow.
