Event Details

Description

Lesley will speak about the struggle of “Women of the Wall”: a group of Israeli women seeks the right for Jewish women to conduct prayer services, read from a Torah scroll while wearing prayer shawls, and sing out loud at the Western Wall- Judaism’s most sacred holy site. She will also discuss feminism in Israel, the tenuous situation at the Kotel and WOW’s challenges and successes. This event is an important space to explore the intersection of faith and the state, the role of women in prayer and the modern State of Israel.

This event is being co-sponsored by Temple Beth Sholom Israel Committee, Temple Beth Sholom Sisterhood, and NCJW Miami.
