Temple Beth El

Charlotte, NC

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).

In Charlotte, Rabbi Judith Schindler of Temple Beth El led the gathered women in song and prayers, including Hineh Ma Tov, the Shma, and the V’Ahavta. The brief service ended with Debbie Friedman’s “Miriam’s Song.” In solidarity with Frenkel, the women in attendance wore talliot and kipot (skullcaps).

The women in attendance were, left to right: Elsa Multer, Sara Schreibman with her grandson, Asher, Betsy Olinger, Amy Krakovitz, Susan Jacobs, Shari Hackman, Bettina Rappaport, Amy Lefkof, Sheila Peltzer, Rabbi Judith Schindler, and songleader Patti Hartman.
