Incredible!!

Lyrics:

You think women’s Talmud Torah is a “significant achievement”
As long as they don’t achieve too much
You say female rabbis are a “violation of mesorah”
But it sounds like nasty politics
Just a hunch

It’s not like anyone was really surprised
But I can’t help but wonder why
Why now why this is it really a crisis
When there are women waiting for a gett

You can’t take us down
With some scary little words that you write on a page
When there are facts on the ground
That Orthodoxy needs more women
In leadership positions
Because there already are

It’s your “sacred and joyful duty to transmit Judaism”
But last time I checked, sexism is not “sacred continuity”
You want “communally appropriate professional opportunities”
That’s what Maharats are busy doing with their lives already
Serving their communities
Appropriately
(Whatever that means)

It’s not like anyone was really surprised
But I can’t help but wonder why
Why now why this is it really a crisis
When there are women STILL waiting for a gett

You can’t take us down
With some scary little words that you write on a page
When there are facts on the ground
That Orthodoxy needs more women
In leadership positions
Because they already are

Oh RCA I hope that you’ll change your ways
I hope that you’ll come to see that fifty percent of the people have so much to give
So just let them live

You can’t take us down
With some scary little words that you write on a page
When there are facts on the ground
That Orthodoxy needs more women
In leadership positions
Because they already are
