Across the Boundaries of Belief: Contemporary Issues in the Anthropology of Religion

By Morton Klass; Maxine Weisgrau | Go to book overview

Notes
1.
Sadan's grandparents were Eidel's adherents, and it is their version of her story which is presented here. In the official chronicles of the Beize sect, it was noted that she behaved like a rabbi, but the social drama which evolved from this behavior was entirely omitted.
2.
The first ordination of a women to the rabbinate took place in the U.S. in 1972. Since then, more than 40 women of the Reform and Reconstructionist movements have been ordained. Orthodox Jews unequivocally reject the idea of a woman-rabbi.
3.
In light of the present analysis, unfolding the nature of Eidel's marriage is of utmost importance, but the relevant information is extremely meager. It is noted, however, that Eidel's husband, an erudite rabbi, refused to behave as an admor, even though he was a descendent of a famous hasidic master. This fact, contrasted with his wife's eagerness to be an admor, might be taken as an indication of a marital pattern in which the husband was passive and less domineering than his wife.
