Rabbanit Michelle Cohen Farber, 1971-

Farber studied the Talmud at Bar-Ilan University and graduated from the Midreshet Lindenbaum’s scholars program for women. Without the option to be an Orthodox rabbi, she uses the title rabbanit and advocates for more women to study Talmud through her organization, Hadran. She set up the first large-scale celebration for women completing the 7½-year Daf Yomi cycle in Jerusalem in 2019.
