We Don't Oppose

This petition had 492 supporters

Two female students asked the Berman Hebrew Academy if they could carry the Torah on the women's side during davening. The school asked its posek who said that women carrying the Torah is permitted by Jewish law. For non-halachik reasons the school's administration still refuses to allow women to carry the Torah. We the undersigned are not opposed to students practicing their faith in a way that is meaningful to them. This does not disturb us and we support their right to carry the Torah when the posek of the school does not say it's prohibited. We further support the right of students to discuss this issue with the board.
