We Support the Women of the Wall  

WomenWallRustiOn Sunday February 6, 63 women and girls came to the TBK sanctuary to support women's religious rights in Jerusalem. Each of us was moved by our own reasons. Some of us spent our lives studying and teaching the Torah. Some had been to Jerusalem and had been struck by the unfairness that sometimes women are abused verbally, assaulted physically and even arrested for praying at the Wall with the Torah. Some held the Torah for the first time that day. Some were young women who take for granted that women read Torah and lead worship, while others grew up in a time and place where none of that was true.

Check out the faces of TBK women embracing the Torah.
