Women and communal Torah reading - VI

(Previous posts on this topic can be found here, here, here, here, here, and here.)

According to its website, Kehilat Yedidya plans a study Shabbat on the topic of women's Torah reading:
In an effort to continue Kehillat Yedidya's current discussion regarding women's Torah reading, there will be follow-up Shabbat Iyun (in Hebrew) on May 21, 2005, Parshat Behar with Rabbi Elisha Ancselovits at 11:00 immediately following kiddush.

Rabbi Elisha Ancselovits holds an M.A. in Jewish Studies (Modern) from Touro College and studied Medieval Jewish History at Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies. He received Smicha (Yoreh Yoreh and Yadin Yadin) from Yeshiva University. He has published a number of articles in Israeli journals, including "Shiput Atzmi Klapei Hashem," Amudim (5750), and "Ma'amad haHeresh baHalakhah: Ha'arakhah Mehudeshet leor haMetziut," Tekhumin (5751). He leads the halakhah kollel in Yeshivat Maale Gilboa, and teaches Halakhic Thought and Meta-Halakhah there and at Midreshet Ein haNatziv. He also teaches the Kollel Gemara shiur at Pardes.

I don't live nearby and won't be able to attend. I hope some other public-spirited blogger can report about it!
