Last month, the women of the Orangetown Jewish Center took a stand with the Torah and in the last two weeks, the women of Temple Beth Torah followed their example! To quote the website from the “Women of the Wall“:
“Let us not limit the image of a woman with a Torah to mug shots and provocative paparazzi photographs in times of crisis! Let us not allow Women of the Wall to stand alone in the struggle to pray and read from the Torah safely and rightfully.”
We took pictures of women from our community holding the Torah and sent them to:
* Binyamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister
* Rubi Rivlin, Speaker of the Knesset
* Tzipi Livni, Head of Kadima and leader of the opposition
* Natan Sharansky, Chairman of the Executive of the Jewish Agency
* Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, Rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy Sites
Here is a photo-collage of the women of TBT taking their place with the Torah:

Kinda makes me feel all proud inside!
