Rivkah Lubitch

Lecturer, Blogger

CWJ board member, Rivkah Lubitch, is a veteran rabbinic pleader who writes and lectures extensively about feminism and religion. In her former capacity as Director of CWJ’s Haifa office and social awareness coordinator, Rivkah helped redefine the public discourse on aginut through her compelling depictions of the issues and women she represented in rabbinic courts through more than 300 blogs and articles, including weekly columns on Ynet and NRG-Maariv. These, along with her widely acclaimed new book, "From the End of the World and Beyond" (Yediot Ahronot) reflect her belief that achieving justice for women within Jewish law is necessary for tikkun olam—making the world a better place.  Rivkah holds an M.A. in Jewish History from Hebrew University.
