    Synopsis:

    As Orthodox feminists, we aspire to full equality and partnership in our family lives. How can we ensure that our communities reflect that vision? What are the challenges families, and women in particular, face in meeting those ideals? How does family life affect our religious life and, conversely, how do issues of family size and economic realities impact Orthodox family life? How does a community effectively address infertility within its ranks? This forum will address the delicate balancing act faced by families, as well as offer models for communal and family support that can help families of all types thrive in our communities.
