Rabbi Allison Conyer is one of the few women rabbis here in the Australia. Sometimes it has been a blessing. Sometimes it has been incredibly challenging.

We look at the surprising differences between Melbourne and Sydney when it comes to acceptance of women in the pulpit.

Listen to her reflect on her experiences here.

We also chat about gender neutrality as expressed through non-gendered titles like “Mx” as opposed to ‘Ms’ or ‘Mr’. And did you know that the 2016 colour of the year is blue fading into pink. Yes, it’s supposed to reflect gender fluidity. We chat about why it might be good – or bad – for feminism.

And of course, you’ll hear a few versions of the Hannukah story, including the x-rated version!
