Women Of The Wall And Of Israel

What can, and must change.

02/22/2013

On my recent trip to France and Israel, I arrived in Jerusalem from Paris on the first day of Rosh Hodesh Adar– a Sunday– and was scheduled to read Torah at our minyan in the hotel on Monday, the second day of Rosh Hodesh. When I made that commitment, I hadn’t taken into account the monthly service of the Women of the Wall, which was to take place that Monday morning as well. Had I been more conscious of it, I might have made it my business to go.
