Darkhei Noam



Darkhei Noam is a lay-led community that comes together for Shabbat and holiday services.  We are committed to creating a tefillah atmosphere that is halakhic, spiritual and inclusive -- providing opportunities for women to lead many of its portions and participate fully in the Torah service.  Please explore our website to learn more about our minyan, our social and educational programs and to sign up for our weekly newsletter.  We invite you to join us!

We meet at the B'nai Jeshurun Community House (formerly the Heschel School) located at 270 West 89th Street between West End Avenue and Broadway.

Scholar-in-Residence with Yaffa Epstein - March 6-7 -


Yaffa Epstein teaches Talmud at Yeshivat Maharat and serves as the Director of Strategic Partnerships at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies.  She holds a Law Degree from Bar-Ilan University and has been a member of the Israeli Bar since 2003. She is currently pursuing Rabbinical studies in the Advanced Kollel at Yeshivat Maharat.


Friday Night:

Because the Rabbi Said So: Exploring Power and Authority in the Rabbinate

While utilizing power is a necessary part of any leader’s role, the abuse of power – particularly in the rabbinic arena – seems to be commonplace. How do we harness our internal power, as well as the power that we amass, in a healthy and constructive way? Do there need to be checks in place for our leaders to succeed? The issue of power and authority in the rabbinate is as critically important today as it has been since the first rabbi was ordained. We will explore some of the rabbinic perspectives on this question, and examine how they can inform our thinking around power and authority.


Yaffa will give a text study during Shul.


Saturday Lunch:

Bruriah: Truth, Myth, and the Construction of the Ideal Jewish Woman

Bruriah is one of the few women named in the Talmud. More interestingly, she is one of the only learned women mentioned. We will examine the stories told about her, and ask the question - who do the Rabbis see as the Ideal Woman? In 2015, is Bruriah a role model for the modern woman, or a relic of the patriarchy?


Registration for the lunch is closed.


Thank you to Ozzie Haller for sponsoring the program in memory of her late husband, Dr. Jack Haller.
