    Week after week I am amazed at the clarity and grounded approach to addressing even the most controversial topics. You can sense how the ideas are either straight from the Rebbe or based on the Rebbe’s perspective. You have to check out how the Rabbi discusses the role of women on Simchat Torah.

    What a necessary breath of fresh air.

    But unfortunately very complex. As a shlucha in a small place and no viable solution to a separate women’s event that would not be kol isha etc. I am left with my hands tied year after year. When Moshiach comes the women will rejoice on simchas Torah but tragically we are still in golus. Ad mosai?
