Synopsis: 

A fundamental principal of Modern Orthodoxy is the acceptance of Torah U'Mada: the belief that elements of the modern world should not only be studied, but can have a positive impact on our religious lives. What are the limits of Torah U'Mada? Which elements of modern values can be incorporated into our understanding of mada? Can Modern Orthodoxy truly withstand the feminist critique? Is the Orthodox establishment ready to view feminist thought as part of the corpus of modern thinking that can have a positive impact on our religious identities?
