WRJ Speaker: Anat Hoffman
Sunday, January 24, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
We are looking forward to hearing a lecture on Zoom from Anat Hoffman, leader of the group “Women of the Wall” for our January meeting. The event will be held on Sunday, January 24, at 10 am, and is scheduled to last about two hours.
Women of the Wall (Neshot Hakotel) is a group of Jewish women from Israel and around the world who strive to achieve the right to wear prayer shawls, pray and read from the Torah collectively and out loud at the Western Wall (Kotel) in Jerusalem. Women of the Wall is comprised of women from all denominations of Judaism – Orthodox, Reform, Conservative, Masorti, Renewal and Reconstructionist. Women of the Wall not only seeks empowerment in group prayer and Torah reading at our most sacred site, but also strives for recognition of our prayer services by the legal and religious Israeli authorities, for the sake of all Jewish women.
This presentation does require online pre-registration, along with a minimum donation of $18. Information will be sent to WRJ members, and will be available on the Temple’s weekly emails.
