Rabbi Jacqueline Koch Ellenson was interviewed by Dr. T. Michael Law, Editor-in-Chief of The Marginalia Review of Books, about Women of the Wall and the recent legal decision stipulating that women are not violating the law by wearing prayer shawls at the Wall.
HUC-JIR Year-In-Israel student Jennifer Maggin writes, “Criminals. Troublemakers. Attention seekers. These are just a few of the names that Women of the Wall have been called. I’ve met these women. I’ve prayed with these women. And you know what? I call these women discrimination-fighting superheroes with the guts to stand up for the human right to pray.”
