Women's underrepresentation in leadership positions in the Jewish communal world needs to be addressed and change must be effected. Having more women in both professional and volunteer leadership positions would create a community culture that would reflect women's values and leadership styles more than the current corporate culture. Ideally, a combined community/corporate culture would emerge that would combine the best characteristics of men's and women's differing ways of working. To this end, it is important for women to overcome inherent tensions and empower one another, through mentoring, to achieve leadership positions in the Jewish community.
