In Appreciation of Belda Lindenbaum z”l

A pioneer and advocate in the field of Torah study for Orthodox women, Belda Kaufman Lindenbaum was President of the board of Drisha Institute for Women in New York City. She was Vice-President of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance, and a founding board member of Yeshivat Maharat. She was also a board member of Ramaz Day School and Bar Ilan University. With her husband Marcel as well as Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, she co-founded Midreshet Lindenbaum in Israel, which is a post-high school learning center for diaspora women and a Yeshivat Hesder (combining study with military service) for Israeli women. Lindenbaum was the mother of five children, all married, and the proud grandmother of 18 and still counting.
