Rabbi Ashira Konigsburg is the chief operating officer at the Rabbinical Assembly (the international association of Conservative/Masorti rabbis).  She earned an MA in Talmud and Rabbinics and was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary.

We begin our conversation by looking at Nehemiah 8:

“On the first day of the seventh month, Ezra the priest brought the Teaching before the congregation, men and women and all who could listen with understanding. He read from it, facing the square before the Water Gate, from the first light until midday, to the men and the women and those who could understand; the ears of all the people were given to the scroll of the Teaching… Nehemiah the Tirshatha, Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who were explaining to the people said to all the people, ‘This day is holy to the LORD your God: you must not mourn or weep,’ for all the people were weeping as they listened to the words of the Teaching.”
