Description

This podcast is not about Nice Jewish Girls. It’s about Jewish girls who are so much more than nice. It’s about journalists and authors, speechwriters and senators, prime ministers and rock stars.

This podcast will redefine the way we see Jewish women—not as Jewish American Princesses, not as nags or klutzes, not as bossy or loud. As strong, as smart, as fearless. As Esthers, as Rachels, as Miriams.

Every week, host Julia Jassey will be speaking to Jewish women who are breaking new ground and changing history.

Tehila Friedman is a former member of Knesset, Israel’s parliament and a champion voice in the Orthodox Feminist world. Friedman is a part of a new generation in Israeli politics who are setting the groundwork for a new wave of Israeli politics and new wave of religious feminism. In this conversation, we discuss the complex relationship between the identities Tehila holds, and we explore the impact of their synergy on the future of the Jewish world. Needless to say, she is so much more than a Nice Jewish Girl. ~~ Learn more about Unpacked: https://jewishunpacked.com/about/ Visit Unpacked on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/unpacked  ~~~~ Learn about Tehila Friedman's work here: https://www.knesset.gov.il/mk/eng/mk_eng.asp?mk_individual_id_t=1038 ~~~~ Unpacked is a division of OpenDor Media.
