The Kotel, or Western Wall, in Jerusalem is probably the holiest place in the Jewish world. But the Israeli government arrests and prosecutes women at the Kotel who wear a prayer shawl or carry a Torah scroll.

The Women of the Wall lead the fight for religious pluralism and women's rights at the Kotel. They are gathering 10,000 photographs of women holding a Torah scroll, which they will send to Israeli government officials by Simchat Torah (September 30).

Come on Sunday, September 26, 2010 at 9:30 AM to Congregation B'nai Emunah, on 3595 Taraval Street, at 46th Avenue, and sit in our Sukkah. We will be joined by Sara Yakira Heckelman, of Friends of Women of the Wall - Bay Area, whose organization raises awareness and promotes the efforts of Women of the Wall.

Afterward, Sharon Bleviss, congregation President, will take a photograph of each woman holding a Torah.

Breakfast in the Sukkah is available by reservation, by calling the B'nai Emunah office at 415-664-7373. A $5 donation is requested for breakfast.

Please see our event page or call the office at 415-664-7373 for further information.

Please join Congregation B'nai Emunah in this unique opportunity to support religious pluralism in Israel!
