"I didn't even have time to pull down the hand brake, and they already surrounded me. They shattered all the windshields and threw stones at me. I begged them to stop, I promised to leave, but they wouldn't let me go."
To the Editor:Jewish law is a world constructed by men, for men and primarily about men. The core of the problem is that women are not equal partners and participants in formulating Jewish law.Putting the onus on men perpetuates the very inequality of the legal system. A more self-critical analysis is required of those in the Orthodox Jewish community who, like Rabbi Linzer, wish to live in a world in which women are equal.RACHEL BIALEBerkeley, Calif., Jan. 21, 2012The writer is the author of “Women and Jewish Law.”
