My protege Linda features in the NY Times:

First, the synagogue sought out a female scribe, still a rarity in the Jewish world, in which the traditional understanding of Jewish law is that only devout Jewish men are allowed to be Torah scribes. Then, they decided to try to turn the idea of dedicating a word or phrase in the Torah from symbolic to concrete.

One thing I like very much is that it’s an article about Torah-writing–specifically, how such projects are funded–and it’s not an article about laydeez per se. Obviously I’m chuffed that Linda is in the Times, but I do like that the focus of the article isn’t about her femaleness; it’s about her scribiness. Thus we move onward.
