Rabbi Regina Jonas was the world’s first female rabbi. Very few people have ever heard of her because her papers were hidden away until after the fall of the Berlin Wall when they were discovered. Rabbi Priesand traveled to Germany five years ago with a group of rabbis, scholars and lay people to follow in the footsteps of Regina Jonas and dedicate a plaque in her memory at the concentration camp Terezin. A brief video of the dedication ceremony will be shown.
You can view the video at www.jwa.org - look for Short Film: In the Footsteps of Regina Jonas.
