Meet a 28-year-old Orthodox Jewish woman on a mission to lead


Hadas (Dasi) Fruchter, 28, is making waves in her religious community by becoming a rabbanit, a term traditionally meaning “wife of a rabbi” but now being reclaimed by some to mean female scholar.

TODAY’s Megyn Kelly looks at Fruchter’s journey to follow her passion and lead her community.
