For Israel and Diaspora

Vaykhel Pikudai ויקהל פקודי

In this week's Parashah we read that women had a role in the construction of the Mishkan, the role, however, was hardly central.  In honor of women's International Day, I bring to you a song called “Shir Hakavod” by Mor Berenshtin who grew up in the Orthodox religious community of Petach Tikvah. The song opens with Berenshtin describing her childhood, watching little boys grow up with recognition of their potential as scholars, while a chorus of little boys singing lines from "Anim Zemirot" punctuates the verses. “Only, I had no musical notes; I had no face,” she points out. “Why didn’t you let me sing?”.

The Masorti Movement is committed to a pluralistic, egalitarian, and democratic vision of Zionism. Masorti represents a “third” way. Not secular Judaism. Not ultra-Orthodoxy. But a Jewish life that integrates secular beliefs. Halakhah with inclusion and egalitarianism. Tradition that recognizes the realities of today’s world. Masorti engages tens of thousands of Israelis each year, young and old, native born as well as olim from around the globe.
