    1. Aliza Lavie states that this conference was the first time that Jewish women have come together across denominational lines to discuss prayer. Not exactly.

      Last Sunday’s conference was perhaps the first to be devoted exclusively to the subject of Jewish women’s prayer, but starting with the landmark Jewish feminist conferences of the early 1970s, and continuing through prayer services and new liturgies developed on campuses and in communities, Jewish women have been actively engaged in conversations about prayer and what women hold sacred, creating new rituals and Jewish celebrations unconstrained by denominational boundaries. In the pages of Lilith magazine these cross-denominational (and post-denominational) conversations have been going on for more than 3 decades.
