“Between the Stones and the Hard Place:  Moving Pluralism to the Top of the Israeli Agenda”

Israeli activist, passionate voice for Religious Pluralism and Human Rights in Israel, she serves as Executive Director of the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC). She is the director and founding member of Neshot HaKotel, also known as Women of the Wall. In 2013, the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, named her “Person of the Year” and The  Jerusalem Post listed her fifth among its list of 50 Most Influential Jews for forcefully and successfully bringing the issue of women’s rights at the Kotel to the “forefront of the consciousness of world Jewry.”

This program will take place at B’nai Israel with the support of an anonymous gift and is co-sponsored by Temple Israel of Westport and the FJP – Federation for Jewish Philanthropy of Upper Fairfield County.
