Women of the Wall
Nov 16 all-day

Join us for a special opportunity to hear Cheryl Temkin, an Executive Member of the Speakers Bureau for Jerusalem-based Women of the Wall. Ms. Temkin will join us for Shir Chadash and will speak following Shabbat Dinner.

Women of the Wall, (Neshot HaKotel נשות הכותל in Hebrew) 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, Israel. The Western Wall is Judaism’s most sacred holy site and the principal symbol of Jewish peoplehood and sovereignty, and Women of the Wall works to make it a holy site where women can pray freely. 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 service by the legal and religious Israeli authorities, for the sake of all Jewish women. Our group, with a membership that is not only multi-denominational but spans the political spectrum, embodies a message of tolerance and pluralism.
