Woman can roar but can they soar

Torah study by Jewish religious movements. Like Orthodox Jews, other Jewish denominations may use any or all of the traditional areas and modes of Torah study. They study the Parsha, the Talmud, ethical works, and more. … Before the Enlightenment, virtually all Jews believed that the Torah was dictated to Moses by God.

 

Sounds important yet it is restricted.  It is restricted to the males of the Jewish sector.  Women cannot study Torah.  They can live their lives with the aspects of Torah.  Is this as demeaning as woman cannot drive in Saudi Arabia?  Where did this concept of woman cannot do come from?

Woman doctors?

Woman airplane pilots?

Woman in Congress?

Slowly the rules change.  But oh, so slowly.
