“I am amazed of your bravery”

Dear Woman of the Wall,

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Isabelle. I am eleven years old. I live in New York City, in the United States.
I am studying Judaism in school. We have learned all about the branches, values, beliefs, kings, patriarchs and history about Judaism.
I myself am not Jewish, but I respect your practices and beliefs, as everyone should.
The reason I have discovered the Women of the Wall organization, is that I was working on a presentation about everything we have learned, and I am supposed to research about current events about the Jewish culture. I found a website that was talking about your 25th anniversary. I was so interested, that I researched for about your website. I read your mission statement, and everything that you could possibly read on your website. I began to be more inspired.
I told my teacher about The Women of the Wall, and she was so thrilled. Part of that was, I go to an all girls school and one of our largest encouragements is women’s empowerment.
I will now do a presentation about this organization.
I just want you to know how inspiring you are and how amazed I am of your bravery.
Congratulations on your 25th anniversary,
Isabelle Patry

It is to represent that there is no end in Screen Shot 2013-11-06 at 8.50.28 PMlearning, and the Latin “Fortiter et Recte” means bravely and rightly. The reason this is my schools motto is that women should be brave, and all peoples should be treated equally with righteousness.)
