    Thank you. A man that is recognizing a hero in the faith that is also a woman is huge inspiration on many levels. I am woman who has a masters in theology and is still not “allowed” to speak in the congregation of her youth.

    This means more than you will know…to so many. Blessings in your work and heart.

    Thank you for remembering and honoring this pioneer and care provider and for bringing to light the sexism that led to her being forgotten for so long.

    Along with the destruction of 6 million lives came the destruction of culture, tradition, and a way of life that was a constant reminder that Jews had renewed themselves every generation.

    Regina Jonas’ “classmates” were the last generation of Jewish scholars whose quest for reform was out of conviction, rather than out of expediency of abandoning rules and strictures. Hers was a life of true piety, notwithstanding her challenging of traditional morays.

    May her memory be a blessing to all.

    For those further interested, there is a serious book on her called “Edith Stein and Regina Jonas: Religious Visionaries in the Time of the Death Camps” by Emily Leah Silverman
