We are consistently creating new campaigns to support our mission of women’s rights to pray freely, out loud, with the Torah and a tallit at the Kotel.
Each year Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, Administrator of the Western Wall and Holy Places, organizes the official Hanukkah candle-lighting ceremony at the Western Wall. Rabinowitz invites ONLY men to have the honor of lighting and blessing the candles- and the ceremony is held in the men’s section. Women are completely excluded from this state-sponsored event.
This year, Women of the Wall is asking Israel’s leaders to boycott this event and demand women’s inclusion in the official Hanukkah candle-lighting ceremony at the Kotel.
WOW is asking you to add your voice: IT’S MY RIGHT TO LIGHT!!!
