German Woman Becomes Rabbi

          Alina Treiger, the first German female rabbi since the Holocaust, has been ordained. I never thought becoming a rabbi was a possible profession for a woman, she said. 
          Regina Jones, the first German female rabbi, was ordained in 1935 and killed at Auschwitz in 1944. Germany has other women rabbis but they were educated and ordained elsewhere.
