In 1988, Women of the Wall began praying together monthly at the Western Wall, the holiest site in Judaism. For more than 30 years, Women of the Wall has led the struggle for women’s rights to pray at the Western Wall with tallit, tefillin, and the Torah, enduring harassment and arrests.

Please join us when Anat Hoffman, leader of Women of the Wall since its inception and Executive Director of the Israel Religious Action Center starting in 2002, shares her experiences at the forefront of the effort to advance religious pluralism in the State of Israel.

Anat was born in Jerusalem, where she currently resides. She served on Jerusalem’s city council for 14 years, pushing relentlessly for equality and tolerance. Anat was selected as Person of the Year by Haaretz in 2013 and as one of the 50 most influential Jews by The Jerusalem Post in 2014. Globes named her as one of Israel’s top women activists in 2018. Anat received her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UCLA and her master’s degree in Psychology from Bar-Ilan University.
