Subject:Interesting article on female scribe
Time:01:17 pm
Hi all,

I liked this article on the BBC website about an Orthodox Jewish female scribe so I thought I'd share, sometimes I find the BBC news coverage of topics in my own religious denomination patchy but I found this thought provoking and the questions well considered. I'd be interested to know how the Jewish members of this community find it. I can't do tidy links so here is the whole long thing:

that is, Avielah Barclay is not the first nor only observant Jewish women scribe, she has several contemporaries, Jen Friedman among them.
