Come learn about the group Women of the Wall in a conversation with its executive director, Lesley Sachs, of Israel. Since 1988, Women of the Wall has fought for women’s right to pray collectively and aloud with Torah Scrolls, Tallitot and Tefillin at the Western Wall, Judaism’s most holy site. Through education, social advocacy and empowerment, Women of the Wall strives to change the status quo and works to expand civil rights, human rights and religious freedom in Israel.

Women of the Wall stands proudly and strongly in the forefront of the movement for religious pluralism in Israel, with the hope to inspire and empower women from all over the world and across the spectrum of Jewish movements to find their spiritual voices and create meaningful Jewish identities.

This inspiring evening is sponsored by: Temple Beth Abraham Sisterhood, Temple Emanuel of the Merrimack Valley, Northern New England Hadassah, Jewish Federation of the Merrimack Valley, Temple Shalom and Congregation Shalom.
