Myriam Ackermann Sommer takes us inside French Jewish life, one of the largest, and most closed Jewish societies in the world. She is training to become France’s first Orthodox female rabbi. She and her husband are both building a modern Orthodox community in Paris, but they are going up against the rabbis of the Consistoire, an organization set up Napoleon, the governing body of Jewish life in France, and they don't want women rabbis.
