The Rabbi's Wife with Avital Chizik-Goldschmidt

I talk with Avital Chizik-Goldschmidt, a perhaps unconventional Rebetzin about her role. She shares her own naiveté, and how her Torah classes became a point of contention between her husband and his boss. We also discuss the fear of a smart woman in a position with a title as she speaks publicly for the first time about her husband’s firing.

​Avital Chizhik-Goldschmidt is a writer living in New York City. Her work has appeared in the AtlanticNew York TimesForeign PolicyThe New Republic, Vox, Vogue, SalonGlamour, Business InsiderLos Angeles Review of Books, Jewish Review of Books, and Religion & Politics, among others, and Avital has taught journalism at Yeshiva University's Stern College for Women. Previously, she was the Life editor at the Forward, and a reporter for Haaretz. ​She is a recipient of honors from the AtlanticMoment, the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, and elsewhere. Avital does pastoral work alongside her husband Rabbi Benjamin Goldschmidt in Manhattan's Upper East Side.
