The Sisterhood of Temple Sholom, Women of Reform Judaism, Vancouver, BC dedicated their study session on Rosh Chodesh Tevet to the Women of the Wall and especially to Nofrat Frenkel.
Twelve Jewish women in Charlotte, NC, joined women in the Carolinas and across the United States in a day of Solidarity and Support of Nofrat Frenkel, who was arrested at the Western Wall in Jerusalem for wearing a tallit (prayer shawl).
As part of our morning minyan on Thursday, we advertised to our members that we would be davening in solidarity with WOW and for people to come and don a tallit, even if it is not their usual custom to do so.
Our rabbi, Daniel Schweber, explained to the students what happened last month and why it is important for us to show our support for the women who are trying to pray the way they want to.
