As part of its continuing education and support programs for rabbis and rebbetzins, Yeshiva University Center for the Jewish Future is proud to present this year’s Rebbetzin Esther Rosenblatt Yarchei Kallah for Rebbetzins, “Nurturing the Private “I” to Better Serve in the Public Eye”. The program was held November 11-12, 2013 at Congregation Keter Torah in Teaneck, New Jersey, and hosted nearly 100 rebbetzins from across north America for two days of exploration, study and community building.
Rebbetzin Meira Davis, from Hollywood, FL, coordinated the Yarchei Kallah, with firsthand knowledge and experience of the unique pastoral, communal and educational role rebbetzins can play, along with the particular personal challenges the position poses to them and their families. The annual event provides rebbetzins with an opportunity to come together, and learn from one another, and from leading experts, educators and mental health professionals. Presenters included Dr. David Pelcovitz, Rabbi Kenneth Brander Rabbi Dr. Jacob J. Schacter, Rabbi Mordechai Willig and Devorah Zack.
