Big shul hires woman rabbi

By hiring Francine Roston, Congregation Beth El in South Orange, NJ, becomes the largest Conservative synagogue led by a woman rabbi. See Reb Yudel's report in the NJ Jewish News.

Plus, a Silow-Carroll column (inspired by one of RY's posts ) on "secular" Judaism and those who would deride it:

There’s even a growth industry among Jewish conservatives in blaming secularists for the decline of just about everything. They tend to refine this thesis in the company of their Evangelical friends by singling out the Jews among the non-believers.
