L’chvod Rav Avi, Rabbi Lopatin, Rabbi Linzer, Rabbi Love, Rav Katz and the rest of the faculty and staff, Obviously, we are grateful that you have created a holy place of learning for both Chai and Tzachi. But do you realize the profound influence you have had and continue to have in our lives? Thank you for helping us to create an open orthodox home where Torah is observed consciously. Thank you for modeling for us how to live the Torah that we learn. Thank you for helping us to raise our children with the knowledge that they could question anything that did not make sense to them, and that that is a proper and healthy attitude to apply to all aspects of Torah living. It brings us tremendous comfort and gives us strength knowing that Yeshivat Chovevei Torah is here to inspire and guide all of us.

With heartfelt thanks,
Estelle and Harvey Posner
Parents of Chai Posner (YCT ’10) and Tzachi Posner (YCT ’17)

In Memory of Rivka Haut, z"l

We are saddened by the passing of Rivka Haut, an Orthodox feminist activist, considered by many to be a leading advocate for agunot (Jewish women who are refused divorces). She was a founder of Women at the Wall and the Women's Tefillah Network.

Ms. Haut co-edited with Rabbi Susan Grossman, Daughters of the King: Women and the Synagogue (JPS, 1992); with Phyllis Chesler, Women of the Wall: Claiming Sacred Ground at Judaism's Holy Site (Jewish Lights, 2003); with Adena Berkowitz, Shaarei Simcha: Gates of Joy; and a forthcoming book about agunot, with Susan Aranoff.

She taught Midrash at the Academy of the Jewish Religion. Predeceased by her husband of 37 years, Irwin Haut, she was the mother of two and a grandmother. 

We share with you Rabbi Weiss' remarks at her funeral
