Episode 42: Fighting the Erasure of Women in Judaism w/Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll
“In my work – I don’t fight Torah… I fight FOR Torah. That’s really important to me to make that distinction.”
– Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll
Raised in Lakewood, NJ, Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll now lives in Israel with her family. She raises awareness of issues that plague the Jewish and world community. Topics she takes on include child sex abuse, women in Judaism, Israel-Arab conflict, and general human stupidity. She is a founding member of Chochmat Nashim, a organization dedicated to positive change in the Jewish community. Professionally, as co founder of REACH3K, she brands and writes for some of Israel’s best nonprofits & businesses.
In my conversation with Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll we discussed:
The evolution of the erasure of women from Jewish pubic spaces… when it all began and where it is headed
The necessary and complicated alliances that must be forged into order to make change
The incremental steps of activism that each person can make within their community in order to advocate on behalf of elevating the position of women
