Why and Whither Women of the Wall

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will explore Women of the Wall's 24 year struggle to be able to pray as a group with Tallit and Tefillin in the Ezrat Nashim of the Kotel. We will discuss WOW's commitment to mutual respect and support across the various denominations of Judaism, WOW's ongoing Rosh Chodesh prayers in the Ezrat Nashim despite harassment and police detention, WOW's trials and tribulations in Israel's Supreme Court, and the meaning of WOW in the broader context of religious pluralism in Israel.
