“The Modern Orthodox community should not fear positive change and growth, but should welcome it”

The Modern Orthodox community should not fear positive change and growth, but should welcome it. The Modern Orthodox community should not model itself along the lines of the Agudat Israel , and its worldview should not be stifled by an inferiority complex in relation to “the right.” Whatever our personal views about “ordination” of women, we should not be passing resolutions that are hurtful to the aspiring female students, to the women already holding positions of religious leadership, and to the many honorable Orthodox rabbis who favor the greater involvement of women in the religious leadership of our communities.
