  1. You wrote, “Shul looks like a boy’s club because it was designed to be one. And that’s a good thing.”

    On the contrary, is anything it was designed to be a men’s club, not a boy’s.” A boy’s club is silly and immature. A respectable men’s club is serious business. Shul is supposed to be serious business.

    You’re right. A poor choice of words. Correcting.

    Thank you.

  3. Intriguing. I really value the all-women’s spaces that Orthodox Judaism provides, and I don’t want to deprive men of their equivalent enclaves. But a lot of institutions that used to be men’s clubs seem to have become “egalitarian” without all the men running away. Universities used to be men’s clubs. So did the business world. My parents’ shul has been egalitarian for decades and the men don’t seem to have disappeared. I wonder what types of inclusion-of-women drives men away, and what types don’t.

And your thoughts...?
