Blu Greenberg is the originator of an apt and now famous dictum—“Where there’s a rabbinic will, there’s a halakhic way.”

Blu Greenberg has long been active in Jewish feminism and is the founder of JOFA (Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance). She writes and lectures on matters of contemporary Jewish interest, serves on several Jewish communal boards, and has been involved in interfaith dialogue for four decades.

She is currently active in the work of the International Beit Din, a court dedicated to resolving difficult aguna cases through the application of systemic, halakhic solutions.

Her books include On Women and JudaismHow to Run A Traditional Jewish HouseholdBlack Bread: Poems After the Holocaust and King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba (a children’s book). Her papers have been archived at Radcliffe’s Schlesinger Library.

She is married to Rabbi Irving Greenberg, and they have five children and 23 grandchildren, nine of whom have served in the Israel Defense Forces.

Women Repair the World is grateful for the support and partnership of Darchei Noam in bringing Blu to our community.
