OU BOARD ISSUES STATEMENT ON FRIDAY NIGHT SERVICES
At its meeting on October 6, 2010, the Board of Directors of the Orthodox Union resolved as follows:
“With regard to the matter of a woman leading Kabbalat Shabbat services before an audience of men and women, the position of the Orthodox Union is that such practice is improper and constitutes an unacceptable breach of Jewish tradition.”
Requests for further information may be addressed to OU Executive Vice President, Emeritus, Rabbi Tzvi Hersh Weinreb at 212-613-8264 or email@example.com.
