Last months Rosh Hodesh Nissan set new records for worldwide Women of the Wall solidarity and support! Not only did we pray at the Kotel with tallitot and tefillin without arrests or police intervention for the first time since 2010, but we also were supported my activists worldwide.
Here are some great examples of how even small groups showed solidarity with Women of the Wall on Rosh
Hodesh Nissan. You can do the same next month for Rosh Hodesh Iyar!
A group of only seven women in Seal Beach, California joined together for a Ma’ariv service on the eve of Rosh Hodesh Nissan in support of Women of the Wall. Although this group is starting off small, they plan on holding a ma’ariv service each month until women in Israel are given the right to pray in peace.
Congregation Kehillath Israel in Brookline, Massachusetts davened Musaf outside in solidarity with Women of the Wall. Rabbi William Hamilton of Kehillath Israel says they hope to continue this until the dreams of religious equality at the Kotel are realized. He hopes Kehillath Israel can be a model for communities everywhere who wish to help makes these dreams reality.
College students are also getting involved! The Hillels at Brandeis Univeristy, The University of Pennsylvania, List College, and more brought students together in solidarity with WOW!
Thank you to our activists for your important work. We look forward to even more involvement on next month’s Rosh Hodesh Iyar!
